AI & Gender: A Practical Human Rights Toolbox

Feb 13, 2020, from 10:00 until 14:00, EPFL, Room BI AO 448

On Feb 13, 2020, the Digital Humanities Institute in collaboration with the Equal Opportunities Office  at EPFL will host a 3-hour practical, agile and interactive workshop "AI & Gender: A Human Rights Toolbox" for students on the EPFL Campus.

Using gender as a prism to understand a human rights framework that underscores AI, the interactive workshop will foster reflection on the stereotypes, biases and gendered roles of both women and men, with the intention of understanding what real-life constraints hinder equality in the working environments and the output of computer scientists and engineers. The workshop will increase participant awareness of the relevance of gender and bias in their work and to their workplace and provides a unique opportunity to develop, deepen, and apply gender equality learnings, putting learning into action, ultimately leading to better decision-making, excellence in science, and improved practices.

Bias is to AI what rust is to steel. It corrupts decisions, leaving us unsure of the integrity of our systems, dooming them to failure.
