Introducing the AI Global Council: Vincent Yates

Conner Gregory

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world at warp speed. Impacts are felt in business, education, government, and everything in between. That’s why the AI Global Council was formed. This group of leaders from varied backgrounds and experiences has united to think through the implications of advancing AI technologies, policies, and ethics.

Each AI Global Council member brings a unique and necessary point of view to the conversation. Today, we’re introducing Vincent Yates, chief data scientist at Credera.

Yates’ one thing on AI

We asked each of the AI Global Council board members to share one piece of advice in the AI space. Yates’ recommendation was to have fun with AI!

“Remember, it’s supposed to be exciting!” Yates said. “There’s a lot of opportunity, and a lot of challenges to be solved. But at the end of the day, if we’re not having fun, we’re not going to do a great job.”
