Leadership Unscripted: A Conversation on AI, Diversity and Humanizing Technology

December 8, 2020

Artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science are becoming an intrinsic part of our personal and professional lives, helping many lead healthier, happier and more productive lives. For AI to fully fulfill its promise, however, it must help all humans, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion or economic background. For this vision to materialize, diversity in the field is more crucial than ever, and must be prioritized. While we have made some strides, there is still a lot of work to be done — we need to ensure that the teams creating, deploying and improving these AI systems are diverse from the very beginning.

Hosted by UVA Darden Professor Yael Grushka-Cockayne, this discussion features Rana el Kaliouby, co-founder and CEO of Affectiva. This session will dig deep into the question of why diversity and inclusion are so critical to the tech industry specifically, and to society in general.
