Women In STEM Hope to Inspire Future Generations

Women In STEM Hope to Inspire Future Generations

When Mythri joined Honeywell 17 years ago, artificial intelligence – or AI – was something mostly seen in movies or television shows. In the last two decades, AI has helped advance nearly all industries and as a lead embedded engineer working for Honeywell in Bangalore, India, Mythri is on the ground floor of countless cutting-edge innovations.

“AI is the most in-demand and trending technical skill that everyone is aspiring to possess nowadays,” she said. “As an engineer, I was naturally drawn towards the advancements in AI and how it is changing the way the world works. I was fortunate to attend a newly launched Artificial Intelligence Academy last year, which just deepened my desire to pursue additional AI learning.”

At the AI Academy, Mythri learned more about the convolutional neural network, TensorFlow and vision algorithms, which inspired additional interest for her in reading research papers on algorithms that help solve real-life problems.

Day-to-day at Honeywell, Mythri designs, develops, integrates, and tests platform software used on air transport and regional, business, and general aviation aircraft. As a young girl, she never imagined she would work in aerospace or be responsible for helping keep pilots and passengers safe in the sky.  

“During my childhood, whenever I saw an airplane flying, I remember happily looking at it and waving my hand,” Mythri said. “Having made my career in the aerospace domain and being able to contribute towards surveillance and platform product development makes me feel happy and gives me great job satisfaction.”

Although women are making advancements in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, according to the most recent census they are still underrepresented. While females make up nearly half the workforce, only 27% of women are employed in what is considered a STEM field.

For Mythri, inspiring the next generation of female engineers, scientists and innovators is essential to increase the talent pipeline and provide opportunities for more technological advancements in the future.

“I would strongly recommend young girls pursue STEM careers and broaden their knowledge in these exciting fields,” added Mythri. “Applying scientific knowledge and learning to come up with breakthrough ideas and solve challenging issues is remarkably inspiring and exciting.”
