Harry Law

Student Fellow


Harry is a History and Philosophy of Science PhD candidate studying at the University of Cambridge. His research examines the social, material, and political circumstances surrounding the development of artificial neural network technology in the United States. He has written on the ethics of recommender systems, the sociotechnical imaginaries surrounding artificial neural networks, and the popularisation of artificial intelligence in film and television media. Supervised by Dr. Richard Staley, his PhD project examines the development of artificial neural networks at AT&T Bell Laboratories in the late 20th century to situate the company’s efforts within the broader revival of the ‘connectionist’ school of artificial intelligence. He holds an MPhil in the History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge and a B.A. in History from the University of Nottingham.
