Session 1 - HumAIn: Empowering Inclusion with Technology
In this session, we will discuss real, tangible use cases for leveraging artificial
intelligence and applied machine learning models to solve problems that affect
everyone. We will walk through what it takes to build software that serves more
people by creating inclusive teams that are empathetic and courageous.
Noelle Silver Russell, Founder, AI Leadership Institute
10:40 AM - 11:15 AM
Session 2 - Building Modern Machine Learning Pipelines
    Software engineering has changed dramatically over the years with better collaborative
development practices, migration from monoliths to microservices and more. But what
about machine learning? How has machine learning based development evolved over
the years? In this session, we'll discuss early ML setup and practices and how it's
evolved into today's collaborative data science and streamlined ML deployment
and MLOps best practices.
Banjo Obayomi, Sr. Developer Advocate, AWS
11:15 AM - 11:30 AM - Break
11:30 AM - 12:05 PM
Session 3 - Data Science and Machine Learning: What does it take to succeed?
    As opportunities for data science and machine learning flourish across the enterprise,
there’s a growing friction between desires to build new systems and responsibilities to
extract more value from legacy systems. With a survey of experiences across industries
over the last decade – including Federal Government, Oil & Gas, Financial Services,
and Precision Healthcare – we’ll explore what it takes to succeed with a modular
open systems approach and how it can ease the friction.
Mike Oliver, General Manager, Federal, C3 AI
Andrew Hoeft, Senior Director, Strategic Solutions, C3 AI
12:05 PM - 12:40 PM
Session 4 - Operationalizing Quantum Computing with DevOps
    Quantum computers today are expensive, rare, highly specialized resources,
but hold tremendous promise for the future. Realizing this promise will require deep
consideration of how to enable useful access to these resources, how to enable all
developers (not just quantum specialists) to use them, and bridging classical and
quantum applications for developers and operators alike. We’ll discuss the
constraints QCs have and how building a hybrid, DevOps approach can unlock quantum
computing in the future.
Michael Epley, Chief Architect and Security Strategist, Red Hat
Gabe Chang, Quantum Technical Ambassador, Account Technical Leader, IBM
