My name is Melba Kurman.  I write and speak about the fascinating (and sometimes worrying) ways that artificial intelligence, data and exponential technologies enrich and challenge our daily lives. I’m particularly interested in “AI on the Fly,” the injection of machine intelligence into previously inanimate objects such as driverless cars and city infrastructure.

My past experience includes working at Microsoft and Cornell University. I am a graduate of Cornell University, the University of Illinois’s iSchool and the U.S. Peace Corps (Liberia, West Africa).  Follow me on twitter @melbakurman
