Women in AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a highly male dominated field with women only representing 22% of the jobs (World Economic Forum). The lack of female representation in AI is forwarding bias and the gender disparity that exists in society today.
It is important to address gender inclusivity in AI and this event will discuss all things Women & AI, how can we increase female representation and participation in the field and how we can fight the stigma surrounding women in AI.
Join us on Thursday, 19th August @3:00PM AEST to hear from Angela Kim (Women in AI Education Ambassador Australia) and Aoife O’Connell (Founder & CEO of Yarnly.ai).
