Women in Tech: Ethical AI with Cathrine Bui

When you think about working in “tech”, what do you imagine? It might quite possibly be something along the lines of computers, coding, robots, silicon valley… and men?

With this series we aim to challenge these stereotypes by demonstrating the broad range of careers and skills that fall under the category of “tech”, as well as the diverse range of people who work within tech, especially women.

This Women in Tech session will look at Ethical Artificial Intelligence

We come into contact with artificial intelligence (AI) technology on a daily basis- in retail shopping, on dating apps, in sports analytics and product optimisation.

The potential of AI is mind-blowing, but has the technology been produced in an ethical way?

In this discussion we will explore the relationship between AI and diversity and inclusion, how we can try to remove bias from AI tech, and what we can do as consumers to make ethical choices.

Our guest speaker, Cathrine Bui, will explore these topics and  many more!

This event will be held online.
