About me

Dr Lyyra's research focuses on the organisational and social aspects of robotics and artificial intelligence innovation. The increasing use of advanced computing technologies is changing the configuration and control of various sense and decision making processes. Understanding the ways how these computational processes are developed and taken into use is essential for the critical evaluation of the dependability and fairness of computational models that control our ever-more digitally enhanced lives. To this end, his PhD entitled as From components to compositions: (De-)construction of computer-controlled behaviour with the Robot Operating System studied the distributed development of computer-controlled behavioural models that animate robot systems. Also, how we come to allow machines to operate on our behalf form a central part of Dr Lyyra's research interests.

Dr Lyyra joined LSE as a PhD student in 2013 after working in technology and management consulting in technical and leading positions. During his professional career, Antti specialised in large-scale enterprise systems, architectures and supply chains in the telecommunications and automotive sectors. He received his Master’s degree in Management and Information Systems from Aalto University School of Business in Helsinki and studied a year at Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City as a part of the programme.
