Ovetta Sampson, VP of Design Machine Learning at Capital One
April 22, 2022

Design leaders and their teams often struggle with integrating Design and Data Science for better artificial intelligence product development. In this talk, Ovetta Sampson, VP Head of Design for Machine Learning and Responsible Artificial Intelligence at Capital One, demystifies the Machine Learning and AI development process. She will also show how Design easily and optimally integrates with this process to yield more human AI product development as well as addresses or prevents non-optimal outcomes like bias, inequity and harmful human-machine interactions. Learn how AI is designed and how Design can influence and impact its outcomes from its inception to its deployment.

As VP Head of Design Machine Learning and Responsible Artificial Intelligence, Ovetta leads and supports the Enterprise Machine Learning and AI Design Team, the Responsible Artificial Intelligence Program and the Machine Learning Governance Design team at Capital One. Supporting Capital One’s mission to change banking for good, she’s responsible for helping to integrate human-centered design, strategies and processes into the machine learning platform and models that power Capital One’s associate and consumer experiences.
