Worldwide, 33% of scientific researchers are women. According to the UNESCO, by the age of 6, girls already consider boys more likely to show brilliance and more suited to
“really, really smart” activities than their own gender. What could be done to improve this situation? Is the situation the same in all science fields? How does it feel to be a
woman in science in 2021?
The “Science Talks are [Women] Talks” is a conference series designed to provide female scientists with a platform to discuss problematics specific to women in the field. In
this “AI & Gender Bias?” talk, organised by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong & Macau, a gender approach will be used
to discuss the AI research field. To tackle these pressing issues, Dr Rosa Chan of CityU and Dr Flora Vincent of Weizmann Institute of Science, two experts in the field, will
share their experience and question the impact of gender on AI applications in research fields such as marine microbiology and neurosciences.
