Anamita Guha

IBM Watson Developer Labs & AR/VR Labs
Product Manager

Anamita works with a team of product managers and engineers that are strategically creating the next generation of IBM products, platforms, and experiences that developers love. In her role, she recently helped launch IBM’s first Hero Journey module, Chatbots for Good: Introduction to empathetic chatbot. It’s a free cloud-based learning experience where anyone — even those with no prior bot development experience — can use Watson Conversation and Tone Analyzer services to design, test, and build a chatbot. Her goal is to expose the course to as many individuals as possible, so that they develop a solid foundation to start building chatbots with Watson to help solve problems of the world.

Her advice for women looking to get into STEM careers is: Just start! She would encourage all women to muster up the courage and take the initiative to learn more about a topic of interest through research and discussions with people in those areas. Finding a mentor or role model in their area(s) of exploration is also incredibly important. She’s a firm believer that “you can’t be what you can’t see” — so seek out someone you look up to and ask them questions about their journey. If you can’t find a role model in that field, then that should give you even more willpower to just start, so you can be that person for the next generation of girls.
