Ethics & AI: Computer Science, Gender and Intersectionality
Janet Abbate, Holly J. Falk-Krzesinkski, Swathi Young, Finne Boonen
About this talk
Artificial Intelligence systems are built on historical data, but data and humans are intrinsically biased. AI is a reflection of society — including all of our biases, including gender and race.

Professor Janet Abbate, Virginia Tech, and Swathi Young, CTO of Integrity Management Services, and Finne Boonen, data scientist at Elsevier, will share their experiences working in the field and their research on gender, race and computer science.
We will also share insights from our recent report, "The research journey through a gender lens," which examines research participation, career progression and perceptions across 26 subject areas, including Computer Science
