Are non-diverse AI research and development teams risking bias in innovated algorithms and artefacts?

Invitation to the next AI4EU live webcafe session

 The Speaker is Huma Shah from Coventry University, UK

Here is a short description of her live presentation:

While the EU-funded Humane-AI consortium (https://www.humane-ai.eu/humaneai-people/) shows gender diversity, the lack of people of colour ignores the fact that the EU region is diverse. More must be done by publically-funded EU AI projects to ensure they lessen the risk of discriminating a section of society, especially if the region aims to lead in Artificial Intelligence research and export its technologies around the world. This can be achieved through artificial intelligence being taught in early education with robotics to engage more females, more males from socio-economically disadvantaged homes and children of different cultures leading to diverse AI research and development teams.
