Episode 27: ACM-AMIA Joint Podcast Series
The ACM-AMIA Joint Podcast Series is a joint effort of the Women in AMIA’s For Your Informatics (FYI) Podcast and the ACM ByteCast. The podcast series explores the interdisciplinary field of medical informatics where both the practitioners of AI /ML solution builders and the stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystems take interest. The two host professional societies, ACM’s practitioner's board and AMIA's Women in AMIA Steering Commitee, have extended the effort of the two successful flagship podcast series to start this new series. This series will be jointly hosted by Rashmi Mohan, Karmen Williams, Adela Grando, and Sabrina Hsueh, who will interview female leaders (researchers, practitioners, and innovators) who have first-hand experience enabling AI/ML in real-world applications in healthcare and life science. Special emphasis will be given to the guest’s career path in this highly interdisciplinary field and how each of them navigates and chooses their path and establishes their reputation within the field. We would also welcome the guest to discuss how she evaluates and governs their own AI applications and builds trust in their own field. In each bi-monthly episode, guests will share their experiences handling interdisciplinary communication and workforce equity issues, the lessons they’ve learned on their own career paths, and their own visions for the future of computing.
