SXSW recap – AI and the Democratization of Work

By Adam Curtis

Update: The Houston Chronicle wrote a recap of the panel on April 1.

On Saturday, March 9th, Catalyte’s CEO Jacob Hsu moderated the SXSW panel “AI and the Democratization of Work.” Joining him on stage were Myra Norton, president and COO of Arena, Jason Oxman, CEO of the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) and Suzy Ryoo, partner at Cross Culture Ventures.

In front of a packed house, the panelists dove into the tricky question of how companies and governments can use artificial intelligence and data science not to displace workers, but create a more inclusive and productive workforce. The standing room only crowd stuck around to ask them additional questions on how to ensure bias-free data and the criteria for greatness in software development.
