    <span class="etn-schedule-location"> <span class="firstfocus">Responsibe AI</span> </span>

    Women in Data Science Ignite: AI permeates and has transformed daily routines – whether it's interacting with virtual assistants, personalized recommendations for user preferences, or smart home devices. As technology grows, so does the need to educate professionals outside of the traditional technical fields. Building an AI-literate community means developing people to ask the right questions– How do I approach or communicate about AI? What are the strengths and limitations of AI? How is the public impacted by AI implementations? What tools are needed to evaluate AI? Beyond the technical challenges, recommended regulations, such as Executive Order 14110, and program stakeholders impose increasing demand and requirements for AI explainability, fairness/equity, and formal governance, while also introducing confusion around what this actually means for people. Fundamental to this approach is a governance framework combining people, processes, and to ensure performance & enable trust in AI solutions. Join Leidos Chief AI Architect Roopa Vasan to discuss the implications and importance of having an AI-literate community that questions data responsibly and aligns with AI governance. By the end of the presentation, you will walk away with an appreciation for data literacy, stakeholders involved in responsible AI development, and first steps on implementing AI guardrails.
