In less than 30 minutes, 26.1 AI Podcast checks the pulse on the latest in data science, ML, and AI
Our guest for this episode shares with us the challenges their firm e2f faces when collecting data for training voice AI applications. Michel Lopez started early on and researched AI and taught the subject in Saudi Arabia and Thailand before the advent of cloud. Instead of practicing AI following teaching, he took a left turn into applying his multilingual skills to performing translations for technology companies. Serendipity brought Michel a new opportunity when a translation customer asked for help collecting voice data. Voice is our computational interaction for the future. Take a peek on how we're getting to this future in this latest episode of 26.1 AI Podcast
Our guest this week Shreya Nallapati founded an organization to help prevent mass shootings. From the #NeverAgainTech website, a quote from Shreya explaining her passion for this project, "I founded this organization after hearing Emma Gonzalez's powerful speech. Growing up with Columbine, I was tired of hearing friends and family being impacted, without being able to do anything about it. So I naturally took the areas I am specialized in, artificial intelligence and data mining. Currently, over 105 teenagers, policymakers, and industry professionals are participating in this project." Importantly, Shreya contrasts #NeverAgainTech against vendors selling tech to law enforcement. Included in the comparison is what #NeverAgainTech has done to ensure they're not part of the problem with introducing a new form of bias with AI. In this episode, learn more about this rising star in AI. Thank you to our friend Ruthe Farmer of CSforALL and Last Mile Education Fund for introducing this week's guest.
