The WLinAI network was founded by Ivana Bartoletti, Dr. Allison Gardner and Reema Patel. The aim of the network is to address the bias that can occur within algorithms due to a lack of diversity within the field of Artificial Intelligence, with a particular focus on lack of women.
The network launched in May 2018 at the London School of Economics with our keynote speakers Prof. Joanna Bryson and Seema Malhotra MP. We are working to elevate the voices and representation of women in the industry, provide a space for honest discussion and to encourage women to enter the field. We have a focus on regulation of AI as a means to ensure that the changes in society likely to occur in the 4th industrial revolution will be of benefit to all people and will not further embed societal prejudice in our systems.
We have an annual conference in early summer, meetups that are more than just a talking shop, write an annual report and lobby parliament for change. Through our newsletter and due to be launched blog we share information and opportunities with all the women on our network.
If you want to join our network please contact us and we will add you to our mailing list.
