Elizabeth Pritchard, CEO of Bitvore, will join Innodata's "Absolute AI: Conversations With the Humans Behind Artificial Intelligence" podcast on Tuesday, September 28th, 2021. Elizabeth will share her journey into the STEM and finance industries, her 19-year tenure at Goldman Sachs, and the evolution of alternative data in the financial industry. She will explain what alternative and unstructured data are, the challenges of extracting information from it, and leveraging AI and the structured data it creates.

Elizabeth illustrates how fundamental and alternative data can offer different perspectives on a company, for example, they may claim to be green, but ESG data shows that they are actually heavy emitters. These insights can help investors gain a more nuanced view of companies and help combat ‘greenwashing.’ Elizabeth will also discuss her passionate advocacy work empowering young people, especially girls, to pursue STEM, and offers her vision of the world in the year 2041. Brimming with knowledge, wisdom, and enthusiasm, Elizabeth Pritchard is a well-known serial innovator, data activist, and analytics-driven executive, and, as you will hear, a gifted educator and agent of change as well.
