About speaker

Davar Ardalan is the Founder and Storyteller in Chief of IVOW, a cultural storytelling startup powered by AI. Prior to this, she was a public broadcasting journalist for 25 years, most of those at NPR News, where she designed stories anchored in multiculturalism and steeped in historical context. In 2015, her last position at NPR was senior producer of the Identity and Culture Unit. Realizing that there is a gaping hole in AI algorithms that will define our future stories, she created IVOW, bringing together a team of journalists and technologists to design cultural IQ in AI. This includes leading narrative dataset challenges and AI storytelling projects throughout the world. Ardalan, who has also served as Managing Editor at Hanson Robotics, has been recognized with a 2017 NASA Team Leadership award for Space Apps, a Gracie Award from the American Women in Radio and Television and a shout-out in the popular comic strip Zippy. In May 2014, she was the recipient of a United States Ellis Island Medal of Honor, for individual achievement and for promoting cultural unity.

About the talk

What challenges and opportunities exist for quality leaders of tomorrow? Let's look at some emerging technology problems.

This might mean that future AI systems will internalize the same lack of cultural diversity that we find in several media narratives -- unless there are interventions in collection, usage, and sharing of data about world cultures. Join Davar Ardalan, CEO of IVOW, an AI storytelling startup, as she explores ways to invite global voices into AI as we collaboratively build the foundations for Cultural IQ in machines.
