The AI equilibrium, Maeve Bleahene, Co-founder and Head of Operations at Peroptyx

Maeve Bleahene

Traditionally, the AI and Machine Learning sectors have been a male-dominated industry. Findings from the 2020 World Economic Forum report state that women make up only 26 percent of data and AI positions in the workforce.

Yet, 66 percent of respondents in Deloitte’s The State of Women in AI survey reported that having more women working within an organisation can only benefit a business and increase success. Ronan talks to Maeve Bleahene, Co-founder and Head of Operations at Peroptyx about this and more.

Maeve talks about her background, what drove her to become an entrepreneur, what does Peroptyx does, and how to get more women to enter the AI and Machine Learning workforce. Maeve also talks about reducing bias in AI, why the human element is an important part of a successful AI strategy, and where she sees AI heading.

More about Maeve:

Having co-founded and built a successful machine learning company, which recently raised €1.7 million from the ground up,  Maeve is a firm believer that the AI industry requires more female roles and insights. This is something that she is determined to help with at Peroptyx, with three new female hires on the cards before the end of the year which will bring their team to a 50/50 gender ratio.
