Empowered by Technology: Building tech that works for Guam
Throughout my early career, I’ve been drawn to several emerging technologies as a Chamorro woman and a daughter of Guam. In this talk, I’ll share work I’ve done on machine translation for Chamorro, research on racial and gender disparities in AI systems, and software solutions for advancing the use of renewable energy. By discussing these technologies, I hope to exemplify how an education and career in computer science can empower us to build technology that works for Guam and the Pacific region.
