    "'Don't let the urgent get in the way of the truly important' — that's the advice I wish I had received earlier in my career," she said.

    "While what we do is often described as 'AI-driven,' people should not think that it is driven by artificial intelligence.

    "The first step is to not be afraid to use imagination to change not what you do but how you do things," she said.
