    Not a day goes by that we don't hear about artificial intelligence in the news -- new discoveries, potential negatives, or future potential.    Advancing AI Wisconsin was formed in 2017 to increase visibility and preparedness in Wisconsin organizations for disruptive technological innovations like artificial intelligence, IoT, and blockchain.   This grassroots effort has been working across the state with economic development organizations, educational institutions, governmental agencies, etc. to help influence policies, programs, and initiatives which will help the state prepare for this disruptive innovation.    

    Kurt Hahlbeck will provide an overview of artificial intelligence including its promises and its limitations and will introduce some of the key initiatives of the Advancing AI Wisconsin group.    Kathy Henrich and Laura Schmidt will be discussing needed changes in talent pipeline development to effectively prepare for the era for artificial intelligence. 

    Whether you are looking to stay current on your personal skills or provide career guidance for friends/family, this session is for you!  

    Kathy Henrich:

    Kathy has been an executive with IBM for over 10 years leading sales and partnership organizations in their services and hardware businesses.    Most recently, she was the North American Director of Partnerships for IBM's Services organization which is 40% of IBM's business.      In July, Kathy took a leave of absence to pursue her Master's degree in workforce talent development to focus on the issue of preparing our workforce for the era of artificial intelligence.  Kathy lives in West Bend, WI.

    Laura Schmidt:

    Laura worked for 15 years for Northwestern Mutual and was responsible for enterprise software, usability testing, and technology research.  She served as the Executive Director of an Education Foundation for 4 years before joining the School District of New Berlin.
