    Then, we move into our regular program: this time, Digital Dish host Jeanne Cuff  is speaking to Radhika Krishnan, Chief Product Officer, Hitachi Vantara. Radhika is passionate about promoting diversity in tech. Specifically, she has a lot to teach about the impact of biased AI in our daily lives, where software and technology are ubiquitous. But Radhika also makes time to discuss the importance of getting more girls and women into STEM fields and to share advice for those considering a career in tech. 
    After all, diversity is critical to countering bias. Radhika reminds us: without diverse leaders, developers and stakeholders, AI can and will only ever have one perspective. Listen in to find out what you should be doing to pre-empt or counter bias in your organizations’ artificial intelligence programs – and to create a positive (rather than dystopian) outlook for the future of AI.
