One of India’s influential voices in the field of artificial intelligence/machine learning and deep learning, Srikripa Srinivasan firmly believes that data should be democratised and decentralised. As Vice President of Dell Technologies’ Performance Analytics Group, she leads several advanced analytics projects in the company, always trying to integrate new technologies into her workflow.
When she’s not busy advocating the use of advanced technologies like AI and extended reality IoT in helping find work or learn, Srikripa unwinds with Indian classical music.
Her interests lie in exploring the different ways in which AI/ML, deep learning, and data mining can change the way the modern world functions. Her story in January this year spoke about how AI could be used at the workplace to make processes such as recruitment and training more efficient — a model that proved its worth just two months later when the pandemic hit India, resulting in a lockdown and a remote working culture.
Srikripa has also extensively spoken and written about how AI can drive better learning and education.
“The future of work is also inextricably linked to the future of learning. How we educate our youth translates into their preparedness as they enter the workforce. And how we retrain and upskill our existing workforce allows them to stay relevant in a changing work environment. Learning, retraining, and upskilling over the next decade will include improving everyone’s knowledge of and capabilities in AI. And this won’t necessarily mean teaching coding or even broader technical skills.”
