Automation does not need to be synonymous with the loss of ancient wisdom and cultural knowledge. With Cultural Intelligence, AI can help, rather than hinder, humans in our quest to share our unique stories.

In this session, journalists and entrepreneurs Davar Ardalan, Robert Malesky and Kee Malesky of IVOW AI, talk about cultural intelligence and introduce us to their chatbot Sina. IVOW stands for Intelligent Voices of Wisdom. Available in prototype via Google Home, Sina offers you stories and insights about under-represented people, cultures, and perspectives, including great women in history, ancient traditions, and vibrant food cultures from around the world.

As communications becomes more hyper-personalized, media organizations stand to benefit from advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) that enable them to better understand audiences, and drastically improve consumer messaging for diverse consumer audiences.
