Chief Executive & Innovation Officer
Ambient Intelligence, Inc.
Marie L. Clark is an expert in the intersection between human capital and the rapidly maturing field of data and analytics. With 20+ years’ experience as a data and analytics leader, Marie launched Ambient Intelligence, Inc., in 2015. Ambient's mission is to empower organizations to realize the value of information while ensuring that humans remain essential and relevant in the process.
Marie is passionate about the urgent need for improved data literacy. Eight years ago, her daughter received a devastating medical diagnosis from a computer algorithm. It turned out to be a false positive, but it took 6 years to overturn the diagnosis due to a general lack of understanding of the role of technology and what it can and cannot offer. This event was the catalyst for Ambient’s mission to teach five million knowledge workers to be data literate by 2025.
