Dates:
  • Tue 26 May 2020 14.00 - 16.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-05-26 14:00 2020-05-26 16:30 Europe/Paris Fellows Talk : Gendered Human Rights Implications of Artificial Intelligence Technologies

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies come with enormous potential to help humanity improving economic and social welfare, increasing access to human rights, and overcoming existing injustices. However, growing evidence calls attention to an alarming opposite trend: AI technologies are reproducing, amplifying, and introducing gender-based discrimination and bias and leading to violations of human rights of women and LGBTIs. Examples include but not limited to Amazon’s recruitment tool downgrading resumes of female applicants, Facebook’s ad delivery system showing male and female users different job ads in a gender stereotypical manner, and Apple Card giving women far lower credit limits. In this talk, Sebnem Kenis will discuss gendered human rights implications of AI technologies and possible governance options to prevent gender bias and discrimination in the design and deployment of AI systems.

Speaker: Sebnem Kenis, Policy Leader Fellow at the School of Transnational Governance

Moderator: Martin Curley, Policy Leader Fellow at the School of Transnational Governance
