PR Newswire

The annual Info-Tech LIVE conference provides CIOs and IT professionals with practical insights to drive technology-led transformations, impact business outcomes, and accelerate their professional careers over the coming year. The first round of anticipated keynote speakers for the September 2024 conference has been formally announced by the global research and advisory firm.

TORONTO, May 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - Info-Tech Research Group, a global leader in IT research and advisory, has announced the first two highly anticipated keynote speakers for Info-Tech LIVE 2024: Dr. Timnit Gebru and Meredith Whittaker. Info-Tech LIVE 2024 will provide leaders and industry professionals with unparalleled insights into the latest advancements in AI and Exponential IT. The prestigious annual three-day conference, which brings together global CIOs and IT professionals across diverse industries, is scheduled from September 17 to 19, 2024, at the iconic Bellagio in Las Vegas.

Dr. Timnit Gebru, a pioneering computer scientist and advocate for ethical AI, is the founder and executive director of the Distributed AI Research Institute (DAIR), focusing on the impact of AI on marginalized communities. Dr. Gebru is known for her groundbreaking work on the ethical implications of AI and her advocacy for greater diversity in the tech industry. Meredith Whittaker, a leading voice in AI policy and president of the Signal Foundation, has been instrumental in advancing secure communication technologies and data transparency. As the cofounder of the AI Now Institute, Whittaker's efforts have significantly influenced responsible AI practices and major policy reforms.

"We are excited to welcome Dr. Timnit Gebru and Meredith Whittaker as keynote speakers at Info-Tech LIVE 2024," says Gord Harrison, senior vice president of research and advisory at Info-Tech Research Group. "Their contributions and work in AI and technology ethics will offer our attendees unique perspectives and invaluable insights. By engaging with these influential leaders, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the profound impact of AI and Exponential IT on the future of technology and how to harness these innovations to drive their organizations forward."

Special Keynote Speakers for LIVE 2024:

Dr. Timnit Gebru

Founder & Executive Director, The Distributed AI Research Institute (DAIR)

A trail-blazing computer scientist, Dr. Gebru is renowned for her efforts to reduce the potential negative impacts of AI. As the former co-lead of Google's Ethical AI research team, Dr. Gebru's departure from Google after authoring a pivotal research paper on the risks of large language models (LLMs) ignited a labor movement, resulting in the formation of the first tech workers' union at Google.

Meredith Whittaker

President, Signal Foundation

As a cofounder of New York University's AI Now Institute, Whittaker's work has helped shape global AI policy. During her decade-long tenure at Google, she founded its Open Research Group and cofounded M-Lab, the world's largest open data source on internet performance. Whittaker gained notable recognition as a key organizer of the Google walkouts and for her role in a protest against Google's involvement in a military drone AI surveillance program.

"Through cutting-edge insights and research, this year's gathering of global experts will address the most pressing opportunities and challenges in today's tech landscape," adds Harrison. "We are looking forward to welcoming distinguished CIOs, speakers, and partners to Las Vegas this September. Together, we will explore the future of AI, ethical considerations, and the exponentially evolving landscape of technology."
