A fireside chat was organized on June 23rd by the Women in Big Data Northwest chapter. The topic for our fireside chat was AI for Everyone: Challenges and Opportunities for AI Software and Hardware at Scale.
It’s a well-known fact that Artificial Intelligence and deep learning are reaching human-level and better accuracies in the fields of vision, NLP, and many more. To curb our hunger on this, we invited Huma Abidi, Senior Director, and Meena Arunachalam, Director & Principal Engineer. The fireside chat helped us understand that applied machine learning is helping push the envelope in drug discovery, fraud detection, and many more by deriving valuable insights from massive troves of data in many fields. Both our speakers are part of the AI and Analytics Group at Intel Corporation. Hearing the myriad real-life challenges and opportunities in AI hardware, software, and ecosystem for Scaling gave us a new lens to look at AI from different perspectives and understand that AI is Everywhere and for Everyone.
