A Bermudian biomedical engineering student is to conduct a series of online interviews on artificial intelligence.

Kameron Young, 22, is in the final year of an undergraduate degree at Queen Mary University of London and will host three of six Break Through in AI webinars hosted by the university.

The series running from March 5 to 14, will explore innovations in artificial intelligence research, discussing its transformative power across various projects.

Following a panel discussion featuring experts at the university, a series of mini webinars will be held, three of which will be led by Ms Young, covering AI and healthcare, AI and ethics, and human-led AI and the future of AI.

Holly Barrett, the student recruitment and marketing manager for engineering at Queen Mary, said: “We’re extremely excited to work with Kameron on what we think will be a fascinating series of events.

“It is great to use the knowledge and talents of students like Kameron to inform and inspire future students.”

Ms Young said: “It is an honour to be invited to interview such an esteemed panel of academics for the webinars.”

The aspiring surgeon, who is focused on robots, also launched a Stem podcast last October called Kameron’s Lab Dive-In, which has attracted more than 1,000 downloads.

Her podcast targets Stem students and enthusiasts and features an array of guest speakers including Marco Landi, president of QuestIT and Institut EuropIA and former chief operating operator and president of Apple.

The podcast can be found on Spotify, Apple and Google podcast directories, including a YouTube Channel of the same name.

Ms Young added: “I am also honoured to know that my podcast is paving the way for students, like me, to get involved in the conversation.”

Three of the follow-up mini webinars will be in interview format, led by Ms Young.
