Breaking Boundaries in STEM – AI for a fairer world¬† –¬† 14 October 2020 – this event has now taken place

For Ada Lovelace Day 2020, we teamed up with Black History Month for an event focused on AI and Fairness.
AI has huge potential to create new and exciting futures, but it could also be a terrible weapon. Will society be fairer or more unfair in the future and how can computer scientists help create a fairer world?
Our panelists included inspirational role models at different career stages and with different lived experiences. The panel discussed: What we need to do to ensure AI creates a fairer world using a broad range of examples of applications of AI with a focus on Medicine and Health.
We watched this TED talk which was followed by an interesting discussion.
