Artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping technology around the world. Over 50% of all companies are perceived to be adopting AI to uplevel their businesses. In the already tumultuous world of startups, how do you determine if building or buying AI is right for you? How do you assess how best to support your company with this technology? Join Liz Asai as she shares her extensive knowledge and experiences as a Co-Founder and past CEO of 3Derm.

Liz will discuss the development of her Boston-based startup 3Derm (acquired by Digital Diagnostics in 2020) and how she leveraged AI to overcome disparities in healthcare. Fostering positive change and driving innovation across various industries, Liz is an active member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Business and Artificial Intelligence, and is on Forbes 30 Under 30 list.

This fireside chat will include an engaging Q&A segment, providing a platform for the audience to interact directly with Asai for personalized advice and practical strategies that empower and foster a more inclusive innovation ecosystem.
