Keely Wright

Senior Technical Program Manager, IBM

Keely Wright is passionate about ethical and trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the positive impact it is making now, and the hope it brings for the future. She has over 15 years of software development program and portfolio management expertise, and a highlight of her career was leading the cross-functional team that released the inaugural 13 IBM Watson cloud services to market. More recently, Keely has used her expertise of Watson technologies to help many IBM product teams, and a few external startups, identify and implement AI use cases. Over the past few years she has also immersed herself in the more technical aspects of AI and was among the first 50 IBMers to earn the Deep Learning Practitioner badge as a pilot member of the IBM AI Skills Academy.


Keely is currently working on special projects doing heuristic testing of IBM’s data and AI products and digital experiences, as well as competitive analyses, to identify and resolve issues to improve user and buyer experiences.
