Today, no two letters will evoke more excitement and anxiety than A.I. Helen Kontozopoulos, a lecturer at the University of Toronto and co-founder of the Department of Computer Science Innovation Lab (DCSIL), is all-too-familiar with the emotions A.I. evokes.
However, she argues that we can make A.I. work better into the future if we adopt a holistic Artificial Intelligence framework.
Helen co-founded the University of Toronto's Department of Computer Science Innovation Lab “DCSIL” in 2015, an incubator and accelerator for early-stage startups in Canada. DCSIL’s startups focus on artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, AR/VR and cybersecurity technologies, Helen works with these teams on their strategy, growth, industry relationships, and UX areas of their ventures.
She is directing efforts at DCSIL to foster innovation and commercialization through entrepreneurship programs, curating talent development, supporting tech transfer and increasing industry collaborations. She is a lecturer at the University of Toronto, in the Department of Computer Science (St.George campus) and Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences (Scarborough Campus), where she teaches product development, UX, lean startup methodologies, rapid prototyping, entrepreneurship, innovation, and growth strategy. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
