Ksenia Yadav
Professor, Department of Electronics at Carleton University


Yadav is available to discuss a number of AI and machine learning (ML) related subjects, including how these new tools may enable people to solve complex and previously intractable problems across a number of fields. The United Nations has predicted that some of the most pressing environmental, social and economic problems of our civilization will be among the biggest beneficiaries of these technologies.

She can also discuss the potential for AI and ML to be misused in various ways, including malicious attacks, misinformation, as well as propagation of biases and discrimination.

Yadav’s current research involves the use of AI and ML in the design and manufacturing of electronic components.
