This week we chat with Branka Panic, Founder & CEO of AI for Peace, A not for profit organization, focused on studying & understanding the impacts of AI on society. Their vision is a future in which AI benefits peace, security and sustainable development, and where diverse voices influence the creation of AI and related technologies.
I had the pleasure of meeting Branka at our Women in AI dinner in San Francisco earlier this year, so it was great to hear more about the fascinating work she's been doing since then, especially their current work on the role of the AI community fighting the COVID19 global pandemic.
Topics explored included:
* Why should more people get involved in the AI for Good movement?
* Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, how is peace related to pandemics & how is AI for Peace engaged in responding to the crisis?
* What excites you the most about this field and for those listeners who want to advance their careers in AI, what should they be doing right now?
You can connect with Branka via LinkedIn, and follow her on twitter @Branka2Panic.
