Builds technology to protect endangered animals like elephants, sharks, and killer whales.
Not only is she a knitting and outdoors enthusiast, Gracie Ermi is a computer scientist that develops and builds machine learning technology that saves endangered wildlife and preserves ocean biodiversity. She works for the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Seattle, where she has developed artificial intelligence models that help scientists study killer whales, dolphins and other animals in their natural habitats. Her work saves researchers’ time in interpreting and collecting data, so that they can work more efficiently! Gracie hopes that her work can inspire others, especially women and girls, to pursue computer science as a way to create change in their communities and in the world.More About Gracie
