Dr Stefan Sarkadi
- Computer science
Stefan Sarkadi is a Research Fellow in the Department of Informatics at King's College London and an Associate Researcher at Inria Sophia-Antipolis. Stefan's research interests lie at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and deception, an increasingly complex socio-cognitive phenomenon that is difficult to detect and reason about. His work tackles the integration of techniques from AI and deception analysis to generate narratives about multi-agent interactions in complex systems. The aim for this ultimately is to help intelligence analysts infer the best explanation against artificial sources.
He has been awarded a fellowship grant by the Royal Academy of Engineering through the UK IC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship scheme for the project entitled Enhancing deception analysis with storytelling AI. This project is the continuation of his PhD thesis entitled Deception, which is the first full computational treatment of deceptive machines at the intersection of AI, Philosophy and Psychology.
Before this, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at King's on the UK-wide REPHRAIN project, and as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Inria and the 3iA Côte d’Azur. Previously, Stefan did his PhD at King's College London, during which he spent time as a visiting PhD researcher at the MIT Media Lab. He also has an MSc in Mind, Language and Embodied Cognition (Cognitive Science) from the University of Edinburgh and a B.A. in Philosophy from the West University of Timisoara.
