Description

Wonder Women: Entrepreneurship, Machine Learning, and Education

In Conversation with Calico Chief Computing Officer Daphne Koller and GoldieBlox Co-founder Debra Sterling

It takes hard work, hard science, and hard-core commitment to change the world. But Calico Chief Computing Officer Daphne Koller and GoldieBlox CEO and Co-founder Debra Sterling are doing it. These technologists turned entrepreneurs are creating building blocks for achieving healthier lives and empowering girls to meet their potential.

As CCO at Calico, Daphne Koller teaches computers how to learn from biological data to deliver personalized medicine. Prior to this, she co-founded Coursera, a company revolutionizing global education through universal online access. A leader in machine learning and probabilistic modeling, Koller was recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in 2014.

Engineer Debbie Sterling is on a mission to disrupt the “pink aisle” in toy stores globally. Her award-winning children’s multimedia company, GoldieBlox, challenges gender stereotypes with the world’s first girl engineer character. She was recently added to Fortune magazine’s 40 Under 40 list.

Koller and Sterling were both named Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship by President Obama for their entrepreneurial leadership in education. Join us as Koller and Sterling share their stories and offer insights into what the future holds for all of us.
