Women in Technology- the bias within-

Have you ever heard of bias in Artificial Intelligence? Do you believe that women are or should be treated equally as men in the technology world? Are algorithms sexist or racist? These are some of the questions that I had not thought about in too much detail before I joined a panel discussion called “Women in Technology'' presented by HubSpot in collaboration with The Center for Transformation Action. Listening to those women talk about bridging the digital divide and empowering marginalized communities made me think about how much power we actually have in changing the way stereotypes are being followed in today’s society. In this post, I will talk about the main points the panel discussed on how important the effect is on the tech world, how I view the discrepancies in inclusion in different cultures and hopefully inform you on terms like artificial bias, inclusion and belonging, negative algorithms or climate change.
