After years of trying to establish visible progression, awareness-raising and diverse employment efforts, there is still a lack of women and female diversification in the tech industry. Two reasons for this are:
In this episode: Between the Spreadsheets, Lauren Hawker Zafer invites Susan Walsh - The Classification Guru, to talk about her own experiences in the industry as a prominent female who embodies diversity, and how she consciously strives to break various moulds in the industry.
Lauren and Susan's conversation goes from exploring Susan's passion for data, her classification methodology: COAT and its importance in data fabrics, to her brand success with sexualizing data and the processes associated with it.
This conversation is for anyone who is interested in learning about data classification and more importantly for those who want to be part of motioning an industry of inclusion and diversification. Join Susan and Lauren to plant a seed of inspiration.
In this episode: Enterprise Modernisation - AI Ethics, Lauren Hawker Zafer talks to Oriana Medlicott, a senior researcher at Fujitsu about the current reach of ethics and their role in technology and AI. Their conversation focuses on conscious and unconscious biases, as well as the ambiguities that surround ethics and the ethical, especially when considering the cultural specificity of ethics and what is ethical.
With a background in the effects of AI and Biotech on Human Nature, Oriana brings a unique perspective to the discussion that will excite anyone interested in philosophical and technical matters.

Analytical research shows that around 93 percent of all online experiences begin with search. And, this happens because users rarely know what they want! A large proportion may have an idea but search is almost always required - to guide users, to show them what they are looking for and how to retrieve this.
Ask yourself: how do you search for information? Have you ever enclosed a search term within quotation marks to prompt the search engine to search for that specific word or phrase, or used Boolean commands? And, what happens to a query once it enters the search bar? Where does it go and how do we end up with the information we retrieve?
In this episode: Behind the Search Bar - Question Answering, Lauren Hawker Zafer speaks to Thomas Diggelmann about search, the end of search and the kind of technical journey that our search queries go on. As well as this, Thomas introduces Question Answering - the computer science discipline within the field of information retrieval and Natural Language Processing.
AI in Aviation, Aerospace and Autonomous Driving is an exciting dialogue led by Lauren Hawker Zafer and Dr. Oktay Arslan. The conversation is for all of us who have spent their time wondering about the minds that work on the world's most renowned automation systems and want to take an exclusive dive into the realms and challenges of automation at NASA and TESLA.
Dr. Arslan is a well-recognised academic whose research has focused on planning, machine learning and computer vision for robotic systems and autonomous vehicles. He was a Staff Autopilot Software Engineer at Tesla Inc and contributed to the development of autopilot software; namely behaviour planning, path planning and controls for Tesla’s Model 3, S, X cars. He implemented the traffic-aware lane change and merging behaviours in navigate-on-autopilot feature, as well as the path planner for smart summon feature.
Prior to his role at Tesla Inc, Dr. Arslan worked as a Robotics Technologist at NASA/Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he contributed to several autonomy projects for various robotic platforms such as Quadrotors, Mars Rovers, and Spacecrafts.
