Linda Virkkala is part of Accenture’s Applied Intelligence practice. She is working in the intersection between IT and business, making data available in organizations which enables more data driven decisions. For example she has demystified a black box system (i.e. Mainframe), driving the shift towards a more transparent Big Data ecosystem.
Linda is truly passionate about Artificial Intelligence and its ethical aspects. She is driving internal initiatives at Accenture about Ethical AI and was one of the key note speakers at Almedalen 2018. Linda wants to increase awareness and engagement around the topic to make sure that we use data and AI in a way that creates a better world for everyone.
