One day workshop on “Artificial Intelligence and Women  Empowerment”

Gender Equality is the 5 th United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). As with other SDGs, Artificial Intelligence can play a role in promoting good practices, or to the contrary, can enhance the existing biases and prejudices. A recent workshop at IJCAI, in Macao, made the case for a number of projects relating SDGs and Artificial Intelligence. The Knowledge for All foundation, the Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaire de Paris and the Unesco Chair on OER at Université de Nantes jointly organize this workshop. The workshop will be organized around talks, but interaction will be promoted through active debates around the different questions relevant to the workshop, of which:

  • Bias issues: typically, AI will reproduce the bias in the data. If the data contains a prejudice, the decision making based on AI can reproduce (and sometimes enhance) that prejudice.
  • Gender issues in AI projects. Is it a good idea to add a "gender officer" to an AI
  • project? Someone who can look out so that prejudice doesn't creep in?
  • AI for Education: how educating women can make special sense? What do we need to
  • look out for?
