How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?
What sub-topics are you most passionate about?
Well, I love AI and analytics for sure … technology in general. Lately, the passion is about helping people build teams, making AI more ‘fair’ and ‘safe’ … and lending my experience to help others be the best version of themselves they can be… that spans from university kids to diverse groups where I contribute and more.
Who influences you within these topics?
What challenges are brands facing in this space?
Well, I covered a lot of things. But for companies, it’s totally about culture. Culture is what happens when no one is watching … that’s how you conquer the knowledge gap. For social good, it’s ensuring your efforts are on the right things with the right intensity.
What do you think the future holds in this space?
AI … we are moving from a world that talks about accuracy (we are pretty accurate) to the mix of fairness (hence my pivot to social causes) … explainable AI. Trustable AI, Justifiable AI.
What brands are leading the way in this space?
If a brand wanted to work with you, which activities would you be most interested in collaborating on?
