This is the second event in a two-part series that engages with the relationship between gender and technology. This event addresses gender, race and class in the area of robotics, automation and artificial intelligence.
Robots and automation may appear ostensibly as pure technical developments. However, reports have shown that gendered as well as racialised stereotypes influence the design and utilization of both. As a consequence, these technological developments run the risk to enhance inequalities.
In this panel we aim to explore what is needed to counteract such risks. We want to know what is needed to ensure that digital transformation will contribute to an inclusive workplace and a social justice agenda.
