Kenza Ait Si Abbou Lyadini - Engineer Power Woman
I build Artificial Intelligence and I like being surrounded by people.
Does it sound like a contradiction?
No, not at all! For me, this is what digitization is all about: a good balance between technical progress and curious and brave individuals with emotions.
Being a power woman in the tech field, I see it as my duty to make our future more livable, and this should be FOR the people living it.
How can we automate repetitive tasks in an intelligent way?
How can we improve customer service using artificial intelligence?
How can we predict future needs properly?
How can we, as a society, best collaborate to make this happen? And which framework do we need for it?
As a Female Tech Leader and digital expert, I am also engaged in sharing my expertise and knowledge in conferences, be it on stage or behind the scenes, as a reviewer or part of a counsel of experts.
For me, the human being should be our focus
Digitization does not happen for its own sake, we need to use the technological progress to make the lives of human beings better. It is important to always recall this purpose in order not to lose the focus. As my professor used to say: “a fool with a tool is still a fool”.
Not all of us need to code, but every single one of us should bring their expertise and knowledge to the table. We are building intelligent machines to free us up from arduous tasks, thus enabling us to take care of the most important things in life. These machines are fed with our data and knowledge. In order to make sure that the machines are aware of the needs, wishes and fears of all humans, we need diverse teams to build them. We need to build an artificial intelligence that serves all.
As a woman, I bring a different perspective to the table than my male colleagues.
My international experience, acquired from being abroad for twenty years, allows me to adopt different perspectives according to the situation.
My professional, social and educational backgrounds offer me the solid foundation I need to navigate in this field.
This experience and learnings from the last years are what I enjoy sharing in Key notes, Talks or workshops.
