Ana Paiva has been featured in Ciência Viva’s Mulheres na Ciência (“Women in Science”).

Now in its fourth edition, the 2023 volume of Mulheres na Ciência gathers 101 portraits of researchers across fields of knowledge in a beautifully edited book featuring photographic portraits by Alípio Padilha, Ana Brígida, Diana Tinoco and Rodrigo Cabrita. This is not the first time that an INESC-ID researcher is featured in Mulheres na Ciência. The book’s third edition, in 2021, listed Inês Lynce, INESC-ID’s president, amongst its 101 luminaries.

A researcher within the INESC-ID Artificial Intelligence for People and Society Research Area and Full Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico (as well as the Katherine Hampson Bessell Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute), in Mulheres na Ciência Professor Paiva highlights how her early passions drove her to a career in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and what she aspires AI’s societal contributions to be.

Mulheres na Ciência is published to mark International Women’s Day. You can also (re)watch the book’s launch ceremony, featuring rountables and an intervention by Elvira Fortunato, the current Portuguese Minister for Science, Technology and Higher Education.
