Pivoting to a career in AI industry from a conventional STEM background

This is the virtual launch event for Women in AI’s Denver Chapter. Women in AI (WAI) is a nonprofit do-tank working towards gender-inclusive artificial intelligence (AI) that benefits global society with the mission of increasing female representation and participation in AI. Nurturing more AI-empowered future STEM decision-makers who are women and come from diverse backgrounds is critical for the non-biased AI future. This is a community-driven initiative bringing empowerment, knowledge, and active collaboration via education, research, and events.

In this webinar, the director of Department of Energy’s Office of AI and Technology and a senior researcher from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will shed light on the fact that there are multiple ways to get involved in the AI field, even if the traditional education is not in computer science. Also, for the K-12 students contemplating STEM careers, they will be sharing tips for building a successful AI career.
