AI Pioneer, Inventor of Decision Intelligence
Computer scientist Dr. Lorien Pratt is one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence and is credited with inventing transfer learning. Following a 35-year career delivering applied AI systems, Dr. Pratt is recognized alongside Marie Curie and other trailblazers by the Women Innovators and Inventors Project. She continues to push the boundaries of technology as a creator of and evangelist for Decision Intelligence (DI), which connects AI to human decision making in a way that is transparent, auditable, and available to the masses, reducing “information inequality.” DI is identified by Gartner as a top technology for 2022. Dr. Pratt wrote the first book on DI: Link: How Decision Intelligence connects Data, Actions, and Outcomes for a Better World and co-authored The Decision Intelligence Handbook. She has appeared on CSPAN, NPR, and many keynotes and podcasts. Dr. Pratt’s work in AI and DI has broad implications for addressing “wicked”, invisible, exponential, multi-link problems including climate, poverty, security, and others that whose mitigation or solutions depend on better decisions by billions of people.
