    About this event

    Bridging the Gender Gap in Tech

    Artificial Intelligence Fundamentals AI900 - More information

    Dates: 16th September

    It is a simple truth: the field of technology is far too male-dominated. According to recent research by the World Economic Forum and LinkedIn, only 22% of jobs in artificial intelligence are held by women, with even fewer holding senior roles.

    Artificial intelligence will reshape every corner of our lives in the coming years—from healthcare to finance, from education to government. It is therefore troubling that those building this technology do not fully represent the society they are poised to transform.

    “In order to get a more diverse workforce in AI, we need to increase the pipeline, hire more women and minorities into AI positions and create an environment that gives them opportunities to thrive so that we can retain them,” offered Jennifer Chayes, Managing Director of Microsoft Research New England, NYC and Montreal. Technology could benefit or hurt people, so the usage of tech is the responsibility of humanity as a whole.

    The training and exam is sponsored by Microsoft and is free of charge for Women who want to certify and work in the field of AI. The training is limited to 30pax per session.
