About the topic

AI will improve our lives. But, as the technology relies on self-learning algorithms working on historical data sets, there is a risk that it may unintentionally enhance existing and historical gender biases. During this seminar we will focus on AI and gender bias in the labor market and the future of work. By challenging bias in recruitment, we find a diverse workforce and hidden talents, while contributing to increased diversity, higher innovation, and new career opportunities.
