Humans of AI: Marijana Šarolić Robić

Attorney-at-law by trade, artificial intelligence (AI) enthusiast by choice. 

“This is an opportunity to align our values and ethics on a global scale.”

Marijana is one of the 155 international participants involved in the Leading with AI: Ignite and build your AI-driven ideas Lab, a 3-month learning journey co-hosted by GIZ’s Global Leadership Academy and the International Training Centre of the ILO.

Although participants are separated during this time of social distancing, their virtual connections are what make Marijana’s experience so memorable. “From the launch of our course in September, I tried to be as active as possible and contribute with my expertise, experience,” she shares, “I participated in a few coffee sessions and forums where we exchanged our opinions and ideas on different aspects of AI.” 

As an attorney-at-law in Croatia, Marijana works in the AI regulatory field to support AI companies in designing their business models in accordance with current regulatory trends. This lab serves as a space to discuss and debate the applications of AI. 

“We shared our good wishes on the benefits of AI and all potential global applications,” she explains. Yet, it is not all positive: “We also share the same concerns and fears. It is important more than ever to continue our conversations in an open area of opinion and experience.”

“I am determined to advance the way we live and work together.”

The sense of collective action was born through the exchanges of these global participants. Their willingness to learn and share their knowledge pave the path for a more ethical AI future.
