Myra Roldan joins #IDIODC.

AI is the hottest topic in L&D since Learning 2.0. It's even hotter than VirtualReality. Why? Because it's something everyone can use and doesn't require additional hardware expenses. And more importantly, when used creatively, AI apps can supercharge your individual productivity. But if you're a manager/director of an L&D or Training department, you need to build your knowledge of these tools as well. They are changing how your team will work and support stakeholders.

Myra Roldan, AWS Sr. Technical Program Manager, joined us to talk about the many solutions and productivity hacks she's discovered while experimenting with AI apps. She talked about building AI generated content, but also how she's generated more complex solutions like knowledge bases. She's even used AI to generate her own app that generates instructional objectives. The future of AI is here now.

If you follow Myra on social media, you may have already seen these demos, but if you're like me, her videos sparked even more questions. Bring your own questions and curiosity to this episode and join the always active chat room. And bring your manager, and your manager's manager. This technology, more than any other, is changing rapidly the way we work and improving performance.

About Myra Roldan

Myra is a talented technologist, a TEDx speaker, author, and an international public speaker. She is widely regarded as an important source of information about new and emerging technologies. She brings in a unique mix of technical, business, as well as, learning experience innovation in the field of adult education and competency development.

While she is well-respected for her innovative thinking and superior leadership abilities, Myra champions change within higher education as a digital transformation leader at Amazon Web Services (AWS) organizing around technical skill competencies to expand a global standard and foster diversity and inclusiveness, devising techniques for various types of academic programs at scale globally, and managing projects around the world's largest educational network, driving success for learners and educators while creating a skilled and dynamic technical talent pipeline.

Over the course of her 10 years as a public speaker, Myra has gone on record to present talks on curation, augmented and virtual reality, voice, AI, and design, but more recently, she has focused on the two relatively new topics, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and design thinking. Some of her other abilities include the natural ability to distill concepts into ones that are more easily handled, along with making concepts and issues simpler by breaking them down into their individual parts.

Myra has a bachelor of science in Information Technology, a master of education, and an MBA. She is deeply invested in advancing and improving the well-being of communities that have traditionally been denied a seat at the table, helping individuals and raising the expectations of their own potential. She is the mother of three talented young women and tries her hardest to set a good example for them always by living with intention, empathy, and compassion.
