Sydney’s ‘Gender bias in emerging technologies – a look at AI, how it is built and where the challenges may hide’
Since the release of ChatGPT, artificial intelligence has been making news on at least a weekly basis, if not more frequently. The question of whether or not there is a level playing field for everyone is an issue that must be resolved before any new or developing technology can be considered successful. Artificial intelligence removes obstacles and paves the way for a plethora of new prospects; but, for a system that was developed using data gathered over the course of seven decades, are we even asking the proper questions? Who is creating it, what are their motivations, why are they developing it, how will it be used, and is it representative of everyone?
Listen in as our keynote speaker, Sarah Carney, Chief Technology Officer for Enterprise at Microsoft, and a panel of Westpac Group professionals discuss these concerns and more during the event. Participate in the discussion, and set a goal for yourself to figure out how you can help eliminate prejudice from both old and new forms of technology.
