Your Engineering Inspiration for Tuesday 09 June 2020

If you're looking for some inspiration today, you might find it in our People section. Here, we highlight stories that cover the work of outstanding scientists across engineering and the physical sciences.

Stories from the past week cover the work of Hamid Khan, who is seeking to dismantle racist police surveillance technology in LA; the top three most important guidelines needed to create humanAI dream teams, from Daniel S. Weld; Carole Mundell, a professor of extragalactic astronomy, on her work and role as chief scientific adviser; and chemist Carolina Proaño, who reflects on her work in the Amazon region during the Covid-19 pandemic.

All of these stories and many more can be found in the People tab on the ENGins front page. The stories you're delivered will depend on your customisation settings (which you can easily turn off using the switch in the Userbar).

Very best,
