Monica Jain, Chief Product Officer and Co-founder of LogicHub, chats with Selena Templeton, host of Diverse IT on ITSPmagazine, about AI/machine learning and how automating intuition can complement human workers, the catalyst behind founding her own company, and what we can do to expose more children to the world of cybersecurity in school.
In my conversation with Monica, we kick things off by discussing whether AI is going to make humans obsolete and how we can use machine learning to complement humans’ work, including automating intuition. In every dialogue I have about this topic, I always ask about unconscious bias in AI and my fear that it will get embedded into the machine learning process – so of course we talk about this, too.
Monica chats about the moment she knew she wanted to get into cybersecurity – when she realized that she was passionate about making sense out of data – and the catalyst behind deciding to found her own company. After hundreds of conversations with organizations struggling to stay ahead of new emerging threats, she co-founded LogicHub to help CISOs sleep better. There were, of course, challenges and obstacles that she encountered when launching her company, from leaving her job to take a chance, to getting financing, to building her team, but her story includes a lot of support and inspiration.
Because of her overall positive experience from her childhood to her education to her career, we end on a positive note about encouraging young people, particularly girls, to explore the wide world of STEM. We need to expose them to the options at a young age so that they at least know that cyber is out there.
So tune in to hear my full conversation with Monica Jain. I hope you enjoy it!
