Lightning Talk: Emerging Tech and the Importance of Tech Diversity

Speakers

Iddris Sandu

Ethos

Technology seems to be evolving at an alarming rate every single day. More and more companies are starting to incorporate new technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning and neural networks into their products. But there seems to be a huge problem that we are missing; that most of these algorithms are created by a specific group of people that can infer bias as well as target a particular demographic.

Join Iddris Sandu as he walks us through technology through the lense of a creator and breaks down what's really going on tech and how we can address these issues as a community.
