Cyber Valley is Europe’s largest research consortium in the field of artificial intelligence with partners from science, industry, and society.
While women continue to be underrepresented in the natural and computer sciences, female scientists and entrepreneurs are increasingly working their way to the top of their respective fields. Join us for a panel discussion with female leaders in the research fields of machine learning, robotics, computer vision, human-computer interaction and simulation science. Top scientists and entrepreneurs from the Cyber Valley ecosystem will talk about their career paths, who and what inspired them to pursue careers in science and tech, and the challenges they faced along the way.
