Vice President, Machine Learning
2019 Day 1 Opening Keynote – The Importance of Ethics in Data Science
Jennifer Prendki is currently the VP of Machine Learning at Figure Eight, the essential human-in-the-loop AI platform for data science and machine learning teams. She has spent most of her career creating a data-driven culture wherever she goes, succeeding in sometimes highly skeptical environments. She is particularly skilled at building and scaling high-performance Machine Learning teams and is known for enjoying a good challenge.
Trained as a particle physicist (she holds a PhD in Particle Physics from Sorbonne University), she likes to use her analytical mind not only when building complex models, but also as part of her leadership philosophy. She is pragmatic yet detail-oriented.
Jennifer also takes great pleasure in addressing both technical and non-technical audiences at conferences and seminars and is passionate about attracting more women to careers in STEM.
