AI for Good Seminar Series - Is AI a Force for Good?

AI for Good Opening Session: Is AI a Force for Good?

Our first session will lay the framework for our entire series by considering the central question of how AI can be a force for good. As we explore how artificial intelligence can address some of the world’s most vexing issues, we will pair the positive outcomes with crucial awareness of potential unintended consequences. Our panel will discuss considerations to be made to ensure this new era will help humanity and not harm it.

In 1999, Ravi Mhatre founded Lightspeed Venture Partners, a VC firm that has focused on enterprise IT, mobile, and internet and cloud-based services and applications.

Strava Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Mark Gainey @ ETL

Mark Gainey is the co-founder and executive chairman of Strava, which launched in 2009 as a web platform that allowed cyclists to track their rides via GPS devices. Two years later, Strava had only around 5,000 members, but soon the rise of GPS-enabled mobile phones and wearable fitness trackers kicked the company into high gear. A decade later, propelled by six fundraising rounds that have brought in $41.9 million, Strava has grown into a platform where more than 40 million athletes around the world communicate, track their workouts and compare their stats.
