Sumaya Nur’s research interests lie in the intersection of law and artificial intelligence. Sumaya's previous work has concentrated on the regulation of facial recognition algorithms, autonomous weapon systems, China-Africa digital relations and AI liability. Her senior thesis focuses on broadening the causation test in establishing liability for decisions made by self-learning algorithms in common law jurisdictions.
At CSER, Sumaya will be working on a research project that examines bias in the context of the military application of AI. The project aims to develop a framework to identify, assess and mitigate bias in the military use of AI. Sumaya intends to do further studies in AI governance from Africa’s perspective.
