Women in AI Breakfast- 2019

Since 2019, VentureBeat has been honoring the women leaders, mentors, researchers and entrepreneurs who are transforming the AI industry — making it magnitudes more equitable, ethical and groundbreaking for all. The VentureBeat Women in AI Awards was founded to emphasize how vital the voices, work and experiences of these women are to AI as a field and a technology, and to shine a light on some of these leaders.

This year, over 200 women were nominated over five categories, and we’re delighted to introduce our potential winners. Each was selected based on their commitment to the industry, their work to increase inclusivity in the field and their positive influence in the community. The winners will be announced and their praises further sung during Transform 2022. 

And don’t forget to register for the 4th Annual Women in AI Breakfast presented by Capital One. Panelists will delve into AI’s unconscious bias, and how the gender gap in data and AI-centric fields can make or break how applications are developed, during the live panel discussion, “How Women in Data & AI Fields Lead to Greater Diversity in Workforces and Applications.”

You’ll see industry leading experts of every gender tackle topics ranging from ethics to equality in their research, as well as in-depth knowledge and actionable insights from VP of Engineering and Head of Data at LinkedIn, Ya Xu; Chief Data Officer at Mastercard, JoAnn Stonier; and Molly Parr, VP, Product, Digital Customer Experiences, Enterprise Products & Platforms at Capital One. Register for the live breakfast now!
