In this challenging moment the <A+> Alliance, and Gender at Work, supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), has launched a Feminist AI Research network.
The use of AI will only accelerate moving forward, so we need to think about the future we want to see – both in driving the response to the COVID-19 crisis, and in creating an agenda for the future.
The pilot phase of this invitation-only global Feminist AI Research network will gather a cohort of eminent social scientists, economists, and activists, side by side with data, machine learning and computer scientists to discuss how to fix the system and leverage AI for women’s rights.
Our focus is on how AI innovation and social systems innovation can be catalyzed concomitantly.
We believe that now is the time to connect the work feminist researchers envision for an inclusive and thriving future.
