Session: Our Robot Overlords and the Future of Tech
The technology ecosystem is busy creating the AI technologies that will run the world. And, like most creators, they can't help but create these technologies in their own image, with their own biases and worldview. And yet, just 12 percent of engineers at tech startups are women. Only 5 percent of leadership positions in the tech sector are held by women; they make up only 7 percent of partners at the top 100 venture capital firms. Can this non-diverse, non-inclusive workforce create truly inclusive AI technologies?
- After this session, you'll understand how to contribute to an inclusive future of AI and ML technologies.
