Anjuli is founder of The Psych AI Group, a business that helps clients “see round corners” by employing a blend of psychology and AI. We discuss the positive impact a blend of human and AI understanding can have on things like climate storytelling and action.

Anjuli talks about her former career as a journalist, her time as a correspondent in Israel and Palestine, why she quit journalism and how Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel led her to a career in behavioural science.

She also tells us why she thinks the notion that 'humans have no control over AI' qualifies for the big bin of bullshit.
