Alexa a victim of sexism? Talk on Gender and Machines
28 November, 2019
About the topic:
This discussion will take a closer look at the influence of gender biases on today’s development of digital technologies. Indeed, social constructions and technology are to be understood in a holistic way. It is therefore not only important to sharpen awareness of how the digital world is shaped by humans, but also how this programming influences people's thinking and behaviour. The objective of this event is therefore to raise awareness on this issue and to discuss possible solutions for a more inclusive and equal tech-driven future.
