“Revolutionary Insights from the Women Shaping the AI Movement”

The AI boom, love it or find it to be a bit more hype than substance, is here to stay. That means lots of companies raising oodles of dollars, a healthy dose of regulatory concern, academic work, and corporate jockeying. For startups, it means a huge opportunity to bring new technology to bear on a host of industries that could use a bit of polish. But if you read the news, you might notice that men are the far and away most cited, and discussed players in AI today. So, TechCrunch’s Dominic-Madori Davis and Kyle Wiggers decided to go out and talk to women working in AI to learn more about their work, how they got into the world of artificial intelligence, and more.

The AI boom, whether adored or perceived as overhyped, has officially arrived and is not going anywhere anytime soon. This means an influx of companies securing large amounts of funding, growing government regulations, ongoing academic research, and intense competition among corporations. But for start-ups, it presents a massive opportunity to introduce cutting-edge technology to various industries in need of advancement.

However, if you take a look at the headlines, you may notice that men dominate the conversation and are the most prominently mentioned players in the world of AI. To dig deeper into the topic, TechCrunch’s Dominic-Madori Davis and Kyle Wiggers embarked on a journey to speak with women who are actively involved in the field of AI. Through this project, they aim to gain insight into their work, their path to entering the realm of artificial intelligence, and more. The series has been ongoing for some time now, making this the perfect moment to have a conversation with the duo on the Equity podcast.

So far, they have spoken to notable figures such as Irene Solaiman, the head of global policy at Hugging Face, Sarah Kreps, a government professor at Cornell, and Heidy Khlaaf, the safety engineering director at Trail of Bits.

It’s important to note that the Equity team regularly conducts interviews in addition to their regular programming, which includes a weekly kick-off show on Mondays, a highlights of startup news on Wednesdays, and a roundtable discussion on Fridays. Don’t forget to tune in early Monday morning for more updates!
