Can we create a non-patriarchal, unprejudiced, post-gender virtual world?
Will gender biases reduce, increase, or will we witness much of the same?
According to some, AI replicates existing biases because it lives off the data we feed it
Fei-Fei Li, professor of computer science at Stanford University, claims Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the “fourth industrial revolution" will have an impact on every aspect of life in the not-so-distant future. The thought of living in a world dominated by AI and machine learning is both exciting and terrifying. While this transformational technology will certainly affect the functioning of consumer markets and the workforce, we ask what it might do for gender equality. Will gender biases reduce, increase, or will we witness much of the same?
