Dan Turchin and Tess Posner

In recent weeks, we’ve been discussing what leaders do in a crisis. This week, we share an update from a discussion last November with Tess Posner, CEO of AI4ALL

In the past six weeks, AI4ALL has…

  • Released a new Open Learning course about AI and COVID-19 for students and educators. 
  • Published a sentiment analysis and NLP curriculum. 
  • Made more than 65 hours of AI curricula and teaching guides available for free at olp.ai-4-all.org.
  • Transitioned many 2020 high school summer internships online. 
  • Shifted its entire team to fully remote work.

Tess is a force of nature. We need more leaders like her who see opportunities in the crisis not to help themselves but to help others first. In Tess’ case, she’s on a mission to bring AI education to high school students around the world. 

In this episode, listen and learn...

  • What's the future of AI education for high school students?
  • How can we mitigate the impact of AI bias in hiring?
  • How high school students are solving real world problems with AI.
  • How a natural disaster inspired Tess to launch her career in AI education.
