In April 2019, I served as moderator for a panel discussion on Artificial Intelligence. The 90-minute conversation covered a wide range of topics: beginning with an introduction of key ideas and terms associated with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. This was followed by a discussion of challenges in AI: including model (or solution) bias and team diversity. The evening wrapped up with a discussion of various ways people can begin to get involved with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Panelists (seated left to right):
William Ford, PhD, Analytics/AI/ML Consultant
Emmanuel Matthews, Google
Ayori “Selfpreneur” Sellasie, Salesforce
Keita Broadwater, PhD, Oxygen-AI
Moderator: Steven B. Bryant
The video is broken into four parts:
- Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)
- Introduction to AI/ML continued, machine learning job roles, and solution bias
- Solution Bias continued, Diversity, How To Get Involved in AL and ML, and Q&A
- Q&A continued
I hope that you find the discussion informative, thought-provoking and motivating.
Part 1 – AI Panel Discussion: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (Deb Watson, NBMBAA SF Chapter President, gives a nice moderator introduction, but the discussion doesn’t begin until the 5:30 mark if you want to skip ahead.)
Part 2 – AI Panel Discussion: Introduction to AI/ML continued, machine learning job roles, and solution bias
Part 3 – AI Panel Discussion: Solution Bias continued, Diversity, How To Get Involved in AI and ML, and Q&A
Part 4 – AI Panel Discussion: Q&A continued
I want to thank the San Francisco chapter of the National Black MBA Association for sponsoring the event and Wells Fargo for providing the space for the meeting.
