Often seen as a male dominant arena, computer science is an area that has many renowned female experts and researchers. In a world where humanity consists of 50% of women, their contribution in this area of expertise is essential, especially for the ethical considerations surrounding AI. Their different views and sensibility have the effect of ensuring that the use of AI will be for the benefit for all.
To widely explore this topic, the conference “Ethics in AI Seen and Thought by Women” puts forward two angles, being AI and social issues and AI governance in industry.
March 10, 2021 - 9am to 11am (East) and from 15pm to 17pm (Belgium time).
