Gendered Innovations in AI and Robotics


How can we harness the creative power of gender analysis for discovery and innovation? Gendered Innovations stimulates excellence in science and technology by integrating sex and gender analysis into research. This talk focuses on our recent work in Machine Learning and Robotics. I’ll discuss gender and fairness in ML and should social robots be gendered. To match the global reach of science and technology, Gendered Innovations was developed through a collaboration of over a hundred experts from across the United States, Europe, Canada, and Asia.
