Who are you and how did you become interested in this technology? 

I am Jenifer, the CEO & Founder of Develop Diverse. I am a research scientist and worked in tech for more than 10 years in academia and industry. The lack of women & minorities in tech and top management, and the inequalities I and other experienced in the workplace made me quit my job and use my skills in tech to build a software tool to accelerate the process of recruiting diverse people. 
What are you doing at work? 

I am in charge of fund raising, I am the business developer, I am the face of Develop Diverse (speaker, pitcher, interviews), and ensure every team member feels part of the team by empowering each single one and promoting inclusive culture. 
What are the most important concepts in your technology (your sub-branch)? 

Natural language processing and Machine learning 
Why is it exciting? 

Because it is possible to recreate human behaviour with technology, specially, language. Language is very complex and unpredictable and NLP and ML is allowing us to pick up on patterns and follow the changes on language across time.  
What do you think are the most interesting controversies? 

The most interesting controversies we faced are while pitching.. it seems that pitching gender inequalities is political.  
Your own favourite projects? 
Developing our tool for every single employee to enable companies build an inclusive culture through inclusive internal communication - emails & chats.
