Position

Group Director of R2 Data Labs, Rolls Royce

Caroline has spent 25 years analysing, advising on and managing strategic change at the cutting edge of technology development, and leading the transfer of emerging technologies to the commercial market. She has significant and senior experience in both public and private sector settings. Most recently, she holds the role of Group Director of R2 Data Labs, the artificial intelligence and data analytics division of Rolls-Royce. In December 2020, she led the publication under creative commons licence of the Aletheia Framework™ - Rolls-Royce’s Artificial Ethics and Trustworthiness toolkit. This practical and operationally deployable toolkit allows AI developers and the organisations they work for to demonstrate trust in their algorithms, especially in contexts where AIs deliver automation and decision-making in the physical world. In December 2021 Aletheia v2.0 was released, including case study materials covering its adoption in media, education, sustainability and oncology use cases and an extension to the framework covering data bias and assuring data integrity.

She was previously a member of the research board of the PETRAS Hub, the UK’s national centre of excellence for IoT cybersecurity (www.petras-iot.org).
