What is Marta’s presentation about:

Demographic biases are widely affecting artificial intelligence. In particular, gender bias is clearly spread in natural language processing applications, e.g. from stereotyped translations to poorer speech recognition for women than for men. In this talk, I am going to overview the research and challenges that are currently emerging towards fairer natural language processing in terms of gender.
