IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, March 28, 2018: Using Blockchain for AI Authenticity

Speaker: Karen Kilroy

Biography:Karen Kilroy is a life-long technologist with heart.  Living in Austin, Texas, she has invented several products including Kilroy Blockchain PaaS, Riley, and Carnak.  Karen believes that artificial intelligence and virtual reality don't have to be scary and that technology can be proactively designed to be used for good. Karen's background includes many years of working as an open source software engineer, which has prepared her for the new world of cognitive intelligence and immutable ledgers.

Karen is also a professional dragon boat coach, and currently volunteers to coach the Wildcats at the Texas School of the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Karen lives in downtown Austin, Texas, is the host of the IBM Watson Cognitive Tech Meetup and of the OroPlatform Meetup, and is co-host of the Blockchain for Business Meetup.

Description:Artificial Intelligence (AI) is only as good as the data upon which it is based. Standards for identification of data sources for historical data are virtually non-existent. Join Karen Kilroy, CEO of Kilroy Blockchain, for a discussion of why the data science and AI communities need to collaborate to make AI sources of data verifiable. We will also share ideas on how we can establish ways for consumers of AI to verify that no one has tampered with the data.
