Valeria Sadovykh

Technology Strategist at Microsoft. Ph.D. in Information Systems

About me

I’m an emerging technology leader, speaker, and scholar, with a penchant for solving societal challenges.

My expertise on the utilization of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Intelligent Automation (IA) and digital transformation has shaped the business decisions of various multinational corporations across a range of industries. For over 10 years, I’ve led strategic IT developments involving emerging technology, Industry 4.0, digital transformation, intelligent automation, and mass customization, to successfully deliver business-critical projects such as enhanced workplace efficiencies, operational decision-making, sustainable practices, and optimizing the customer journey.

As a global citizen with a growth mindset I have lived and worked in Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and now the US, where as a business professional, I bring a unique combination of technical expertise, commercial and financial acumen, a PhD-grade lens and the ability to lead and inspire multi-disciplinary, global teams and stakeholders.

As a scholar, I’m passionate about researching and educating on socially responsive AI, decision-making and decision intelligence, using AI for good and social innovation.

I have been conferred the status of an 'Individual with Extraordinary Ability' by the US Government (EB1A Green Card) for my innovative work, academic achievements, several national and international awards.

I enjoy meeting people and hearing new perspectives. Reach out if you want to talk to me about emerging tech, decision intelligence, social innovation or volunteering. Click here for my availability - https://calendly.com/vsadovykh
