Why Women in A.I. - a CognitionX Event
Tue, May 2, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM BST
Read blog post from Tabitha on Why Women in AI and come along to discuss and debate how to get more women into AI.
Academics and industry leaders are training machines to 'Think Like Us'. Machines can navigate a map with real time traffic, spot cancer earlier than a human eye, predict crop yields, trade stock, teach in school, beat a human at Jeopardy or Go, schedule meetings, paint an (unnoticeably) fake Van Gogh, predict social unrest, troll people on Twitter and influence elections.
It’s vital that the 'Us' in 'Think Like Us' is representative.
Empathy, nurturing, listening, multi-tasking, intuition, teaching and mothering are skills and qualities we need to be involved in training AI machines. The question is how to ensure they are at the table.
I believe there is an urgent need to get more women involved. It’s crucial that AI is inherently built with equality at the centre.
CognitionX is a Community and Directory for All Things AI. Our mission is to bring clarity to the complex world of AI and provide an online tool and physical events to help companies to deploy AI with less risk.
Come along to our inagural event (speakers to be confirmed) and discuss, debate and move the conversation on.
