The University of California at Davis and MKF, a public non-profit that works to empower women, are hosting an upcoming panel on Thursday, April 20th, examining the role Artificial Intelligence could play in reshaping the current employment landscape. The AI discussion panel will be moderated by Meera Kaul, founder of MKF (http://www.mkfimpact.org) and will include senior technology and innovation leaders.
“Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an exciting, burgeoning field with a myriad of opportunities for women, and in particular women coders,” says Meera Kaul. “AI will code. Routine jobs will be taken over by AI in the next couple of years. Skills required to work in corporations will change and we need to change our skills to do the jobs that AI cannot perform yet. This panel will examine the career possibilities and outcomes presented in the new age of AI.”
Panelists include Kerem Tomak, SVP, Chief Digital Marketing & Analytics Officer, Sears; Bhavna Kumar, Investor and Advisor, Samsung Next; Joseph Wei, Managing Director Flat360 Labs and Vice Chair IEEE; Sanjay Saigal, Executive Director, MBA at UC Davis; Julia Minkowski, Risk Analytics Manager, Fiserv; and Satya Misra, Sr Director, Strategic Accounts Infosys.
In addition to examining the potential employment impact of AI, Kaul hopes the panel will inspire women looking to grow their careers with the new opportunities presented in the age of AI. A longtime advocate of women’s rights and their inclusion in technology and STEM, Kaul founded MKF, a public non-profit that works to nurture the social, economic and intellectual potential of women. In addition to the upcoming AI panel, MKF will continue to host and put on engaging events throughout the year, leading up to its Women in STEM (WiSTEM) conference in San Francisco in September 2017 (http://www.womeninstemconference.com).
