Vanessa Hanschke

Vanessa Hanschke is a Data Scientist at Microsoft in Milan. Her academic background is a mix of humanities and technology with a Bachelor’s Degree in Cognitive Science and a Master in Design Informatics. Two and a half years ago, right after handing in her Master’s thesis, Vanessa started working at Microsoft where she helps her Italian and international customers navigate the world of Data and Artificial Intelligence.

She also has a passion for the philosophical side of AI and likes to ask herself questions, such as, where this progress is leading our society and how everyone can benefit from it. For Vanessa, encouraging girls to break the traditional and statistical boundaries in technical domains is one of the steps to making AI inclusive.
