I'm Katrina Ingram. I spent over two decades as a marketer and senior executive in a range of industries. I left my role as a media executive in 2017 to become a grad student which led to the launch of my podcast Back to School Again as well as a master's in communications and technology with a focus on AI and ethics.
In late 2018 I attended a talk with a prominent AI researcher who shared concerns about how some artificial intelligence was being built and deployed in ways that are unethical and harmful. Afterward, I asked him who was working on this problem and when he told me not enough people, I signed up to learn more about it. That launched a journey into the world of AI and ethics first as part of my graduate studies and now professionally.
Ethically Aligned AI is now a company that provides research, education, tools, audits, and advisory services to organizations who aspire to build or deploy AI in ways that best align with the values of humanity. We also provide consumer education to help people make better choices about the AI-enabled products they consume.
