Applying Data-Driven Solutions to Fertility Treatments

Yael Gold-Zamir
M.D. Founder and CEO at Embryonics

Computers have always been superior to humans when it comes to computational-heavy work. Our brains are simply not wired to handle as much data as a computer. As humans, our domain has always been judgement dependent expert decision-making. But that gap is narrowing. Computers have been out-performing humans in various fields for a number of years. Embryonics is just one of those examples. Embryonics technology out-performed a panel of embryologists in predicting which embryos would result in pregnancy by over 20%. According to their website and backed by the countless lives they’ve changed, their algorithm boasts a 12% increase of positive predictive value and a 29% increase of negative predictive value.

Building Trust in Government with Responsible AI

Kathy McNeill
Director of Artifical Intelligence – Center of Excellence at GSA

A framework for AI that leads to successful outcomes includes proper governance, thoughtfully conceived processes based on input from affected stakeholders, and transparency about AI’s role in decision making. Responsible AI represents this comprehensive approach. To achieve it, governments must empower leadership and use AI to enhance human decision making—not replace it. A Responsible AI approach should include regular reviews, integration with standard tools and data models, and a plan for potential lapses.

The Business Side of Women in Technology

Tripti Sethi
Senior Director, Global Data & AI COE Lead at Avanade

Some estimates put the number of unfilled tech jobs at more than one million, yet women hold fewer than 25% of all technology jobs. There are several reasons women are under-represented in the sector: gender bias, a lack of information about the potential for STEM careers early in a girl’s education, a shortage of female mentors, company cultures that don’t adequately support women technologists, and more. However, the bottom line is that not enough women are pursuing careers in tech. Fortunately, times are changing. Some companies are taking steps to attract more women employees by addressing pay gaps, offering flexible work policies, and implementing programs to help women thrive.

Optimizing the Power of AI for Gender Equity

Katica Roy
CEO at Pipeline Equity

From Fortune 500 stalwarts to Silicon Valley startups, gender equity has been a challenge for generations. But today despite universal agreement that a fix is overdue, not much has been done to actually move the needle. Because the workplace was not designed to value women, we need to change the ways we make decisions and evaluate talent to truly address the problem, and technology can be an accelerator. Using AI and natural language processing, software can identify bias in performance evaluations and point organizations toward making better decisions about promotions and new opportunities for employees. It’s more than just an issue of fairness for companies to act. For every 10% increase in gender equity toward parity, there is a 1% to 2% increase in revenue.

Battling Bias in AI

Sherika Ekpo
Global Diversity and Inclusion Lead – Research and Artificial Intelligence at Google

For leaders, the promise of AI needs to be offset by an understanding of the risks. A lack of diversity and the inherent bias in technology influences many critical decisions around health, education, the workplace and society in general. It’s not the fundamental technology that’s racist or sexist, but the data on which we train the algorithms or the unconscious biases and prejudices of the developers. Battling these biases within and beyond the workplace includes addressing workplace equity and essential diversity and inclusion programs and initiatives. Beyond the world of HR and technology, one path to battling biases involves building awareness at a young age or through professional mentorship.
