The RAI Rockstar series aims to improve the representation of women and members of historically under-represented groups in AI careers. Our first speaker, Prof. Sihem Amer-Yahia, is a Silver Medal CNRS Research Director and Deputy Director of the Lab of Informatics of Grenoble. She works on exploratory data analysis and fairness in job marketplaces.
During her visit in November 2022, Sihem delivered two insightful talks on AI-Powered Data-Informed Educational Platforms and the Commodification of Data Exploration.
She also engaged with the NYU community through a fireside chat and shared her experience as a woman, a scientist, an engineer, and a person of diverse heritage in the field of computer science and data science research.
