Talk: AI Superheroes: New Rules for Solving the World's Biggest Problems
CodeVA is a non-profit that partners with schools, parents, and communities to bring equitable computer science education to all of Virginia’s students. Full STEAM Ahead is an annual conference for middle schoolers put together by CodeVA. Through hand-on activities, students are introduced to Science, Engineering, Technology, Art, and Mathematics professionals to encourage their participation in STEAM fields. In 2021, Kishau provided the closing keynote titled "AI Superheroes: New Rules for Solving the World's Biggest Problems." Most business leaders agree that artificial intelligence (AI) will play a key role in shaping the future of work and solving some of the world’s most critical problems. AI careers involve math, coding, data, and research, but also require skills in business and art and empathy and critical thinking and change management and communication … engineering alone won’t create a “good AI” solution. This session highlights future opportunities for artificial intelligence careers and (hopefully) challenge your thinking regarding who will solve the world’s biggest problems.
