My Personal Website: www.aakritisrikanth.com As AI Technology Leader, I lead AI product marketing at a Fortune 500 company Red Hat (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat). I ramped up the AI initiative from scratch for Red Hat as one of the first team members of their Innovation Leadership Team. Its been an honor to be featured as the "Influential Woman in AI" on Entrepreneur.com (https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/3202050) where senior executives from Red Hat, Udacity / Google, Salesforce have spoken about my work. Prior to that, I won the IBM Watson competition and was a national finalist back when Watson first won against the grand champion on the Jeopardy game in addition to launching products at IBM Watson as one of their first and youngest product team members. I led IBM Watson Superwoman's group as I would like to see more women succeed in technology. I have been invited to be a keynote speaker by personalities such as CEO Of Pragmatic Marketing and I recently inaugurated the Pragmatic Speaker Series in SF. I hail from the Kellogg School of Management Northwestern University and also hold a Computer Science from the Ohio State University. I started my career at Deloitte and D.E.Shaw & Co. where Jeff Bezos served as the VP of Technology before starting Amazon. As an AI expert, I have been involved in many AI conferences-GraceHopper conference, MLConf, AI Summit. Also, I grew the Boston Data Science Meetup to 800+ members which included notable data scientists from Google, Facebook, Spotify, Amazon and IBM Watson. As a member of Forbes Communications Council, I am passionate about personal branding and have conducted webinars (https://medium.com/@danjlipson/pragmatic-marketing-personal-branding-d98e79d23cd) on the topic.
