There is a staggering gender gap in the representation of women within the Computer Science field with only 18% females. Even more concerning is that within AI, female representation stands at only 12%. We are on a path to change this status quo.
Girls In AI launched in partnership with Microsoft and Mastercard in 2018: London, New York, San Francisco (x2) and Seattle
In 2019 Girls in AI inspired 300 teenage women into AI, engaged over 150 employees and over 20 speakers including Eric Hovitz (Director, Microsoft Research Labs), Ece Kamar (Senior Researcher, Microsoft), Akli Adjaoute (CEO, Brighterion) and many more.
Teens in AI Africa team is looking to organise Girls in AI Workshops/Hackathons across as many African countries as possible - support us!
