    AI4Good: Canadian Lab Empowers Women in Computer Science - Ep. 103

    AI4Good: Canadian Lab Empowers Women in Computer Science - Ep. 103

    Doina Precup is applying Romanian wisdom to the gender gap in the fields of AI and computer science.

    The associate professor at McGill University and research team lead at AI startup DeepMind spoke with AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about her personal experiences, along with the AI4Good Lab she co-founded to give women more access to machine learning training.

    Growing up in Romania, Precup attended a high school that specialized in computer science and a technical university. She didn’t experience gender disparity in these learning environments.

    “If anything, programming was considered a very good job for women, because you did not need to be working in the fields,” she explained.

    It made the gap in Canadian universities and companies even more noticeable. At McGill, Precup saw that female students were hesitant to speak up or pursue graduate studies.

    Together with Angelique Mannella, CEO of AM Consulting and an Amazon employee, Precup was inspired to start the AI4Good Lab in 2017.

    AI Startup Brings Computer Vision to Customer Service - Ep. 102

    AI Startup Brings Computer Vision to Customer Service - Ep. 102

    When your appliances break, the last thing you want to do is spend an hour on the phone trying to reach a customer service representative.

    Using computer vision, Drishyam.AI is eliminating service lines to help consumers more quickly.

    Satish Mandalika, the CEO and founder of the deep learning-based image recognition platform, spoke with AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about the company.

    “Customer support is ripe for disruption,” Mandalika said. Drishyam.AI is changing the game by giving customers an app that they use to take a picture of the product they need help with at any time of day or night, rather than calling a help line.

    Using computer vision, Drishyam.AI analyzes the issue and communicates directly with manufacturers, rather than going through retail outlets. This is more efficient because a product’s lifetime warranty is usually held by the company that made it, rather than the stores selling it like Home Depot and Lowe’s.

Podcast perfect

Great guests, short format, enough depth to make you want to look up detail online (podcast perfect).

But most critical, questions I would ask! Now this isn’t an in-depth dissection, but it is at the right level for a naturally slow and linear format like a podcast.

My favorite podcast!

Very enjoyable listening experience

Listening to my first podcast was very informative and quickly opened my eyes to the fascinating world of machine learning and AI. I highly recommend giving it a try!

Nerd Hero ,

Variety and Substance

Enjoy the discussion about AI. These interviews stay on subject - I like it a lot better than other podcasts where interviews become all about the interviewee. This podcast is about the tech and human responsibility involved in it too.

Great baseline in these episodes, and I love the referrals for more information at the end.

Recording quality will increase with time I’m sure!
