Ivana Bartoletti is Technical Director, Privacy at Deloitte and supports businesses in their privacy by design programmes, particularly in relation to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology.

Bartoletti was awarded Woman of the Year (2019) in the Cyber Security Awards in recognition of her growing reputation as an advocate of equality, privacy and ethics at the heart of tech and AI. She is a sought-after commentator for the BBC, Sky and other major broadcasters and news outlets (Guardian, Telegraph) on headline stories where the tech economy intersects with privacy and data law and politics.

Ivana launched the Women Leading in AI network in May 2018, a thriving international group of scientists, industry leaders and policy experts advocating for responsible AI. Their 2018 report made waves among tech leaders, international institutions and the media, who backed many of its recommendations.

Bartoletti is Co-editor of the Fintech Circle’s AI Book, their first major publication focused on how AI is reshaping financial services. Ivana’s recent book, An Artificial Revolution, focuses on how technology is reshaping the world, and the geopolitical forces underpinning this process.
