Judy Spitz, Founding Program Director, Initiative for Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York at Cornell Tech

We’ve disrupted, transformed and reinvented everything -- from the ways we develop and deploy software, to our basic assumptions about the ‘boundaries’ of the enterprise and who owns what data.  Because of this, the concepts of leadership and collaboration have taken on entirely new meanings.  In today’s digital-first, AI-enabled world, boundaries will continue to be blurred in every conceivable way, including those between human-centered and machine-enabled work.  Join us for this thought-provoking session where we’ll explore how collaborating with machines -- however strange it seems -- is the place where AI becomes real and delivers real value.  We’ll also examine how it’s also the place where diversity may save the day.
