What is it?
The Book Club in London will be hosting a special 4th Estate Literary Salon on Monday 5th March to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Speakers at the salon will include Tabitha Goldstaub, co-founder of CognitionX; and Angela Saini, science journalist and author of Inferior: The true power of women and the science that shows it. The discussion will be chaired by Victoria Turk Senior Editor at Wired UK.
During the evening, they’ll be delving into the fascinating and thorny issue of sexism within Artificial Intelligence. From targeted advertising and face recognition, to Google Maps and Alexa, Artificial Intelligence has entered every corner of our lives at an unstoppable pace. But what happens when the ‘science’ behind these seemingly helpful tools is inbuilt with a sexist bias, and what are the ramifications?
The panel of speakers will be discussing how gender intersects with this new wave of technology, the challenges women still face in the industry and the exciting initiatives that are helping to rewrite this narrative.
