Minerva Tantoco

CTO, Mayor's Office of Technology & Innovation, City of New York

Ms. Minerva Tantoco is the first-ever Chief Technology Officer for the City of New York. With 30 years in technology, she started her first software company in 1985, and recently served as CTO of global financial services firm UBS and Merrill Lynch. Ms. Tantoco is a strong advocate for encouraging more women to become involved with technology, and believes that technology can be used to spread knowledge and improve education, especially in underserved communities, and that artificial intelligence applied to the massively growing amount of systems, data, and interconnections offers capabilities of which we have yet to dream.
