DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
THANK YOU TO THE 100+ SENIOR-LEVEL EXECUTIVES THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE DIVERSITY & INCLUSION BREAKFAST AND NETWORKING EVENT AT TRANSFORM!
Diversity & Inclusion Breakfast 2020 Program:
How AI can benefit from having a more diverse and inclusive team
It is a well-accepted fact that diverse teams with different worldviews, cultures, and thought processes are more innovative, creative, and perform at higher levels than those that lack this diversity. Applying this same learning to AI, it is important that AI models are also built by and learn from a diverse team. Moreover, it is a moral imperative, because it ensures fairness. How can organizations build such diverse AI teams and help make their AI more robust and fair?
Join a select group of senior industry executives in this 60-minute roundtable which includes a panel discussion to brainstorm and exchange ideas.
Featured Speakers include:
Justin Norman, Vice President, Data Science, Yelp
Will Griffin, Chief Ethics Officer, Hypergiant
Ayodele Odubela, Data Scientist, SambaSafety
Yakaira (Kai) Núñez, Senior Director, Research & Insights, Platform Products, Salesforce
Moderated by Krystal Maughan, Ph.D. Candidate with focus on Machine Learning, Differential Privacy & Provable Fairness, University of Vermont
