My name is Dezzie.
I work on IBM Watson Conversation.
Sometimes I speak at conferences, if I have something worthwhile to say.
Things I care about on the Internet:
- Internet history
- Increasing diversity in tech staff and leadership
- The intersection between psychological research and design
- Ethical implications of and uses for as-is AI technology, particularly on the poor and marginalized
- Building authentic technology for the 99% and less for the 1%
- Reducing design vulgarity (in the Vignellian sense)
- Keeping the Internet free, open, and accessible to everyone
Things I care about off the Internet:
- Telling people how much I like the Internet
- Making food
- Eating food
- Burning off food
- The University of Notre Dame
