An Interview with OKRA CEO & Founder Loubna Bouarfa

Posted by World Summit AI on Jul 10, 2020 11:20:42 AM
We spoke to Loubna Bouarfa, CEO & Founder of OKRA  ahead of her presentation (24th September 2020) at Inspired AI, the series of 10 cutting-edge and CPD Accredited business, science, tech and networking online events gathering the global AI community and hosted by world-leading AI experts #withoutborders running from September to November 2020.
 
So Loubna, what’s the “coolest”/ most “wow-factor" thing you’ve seen so far in with the use of AI in the sector you work in?
 
One of the most rewarding elements of my work at OKRA is to see the user experience: at the beginning using AI to confirm their gut feel, and after a few months using AI systems to make decisions. Seeing the wow-factor in a client’s adoption journey is priceless.

An interview with Columbia University Research PHD Student Ana-Andrea Stoica

Posted by World Summit AI on Jul 10, 2020 10:05:22 AM

We spoke to Ana-Andrea Stoica, Research PHD Student at Columbia University ahead of her presentation (22nd October 2020) at Inspired AI, the series of 10 cutting-edge and CPD Accredited business, science, tech and networking online events gathering the global AI community and hosted by world-leading AI experts #withoutborders running from September to November 2020.

So Ana-Andrea, how do you think AI will cause human contact to change in the future?

As we've seen during quarantine times, AI is already changing human contact as it's making it easier to keep connected while apart. I think AI can be used to lessen some of the current social hierarchies (perhaps students would be more confident in contacting faculty given the easiness of online interaction, or perhaps it will be easier for all of us to connect regardless of expertise or background).
