Are AI machines really impartial and reliable? Not when it comes to gender.














💻 It’s true that artificial intelligence is run by machines designed to improve humans' tasks and solve our complex problems. However, contrary to popular belief, machines are not gender-neutral.


🚹🚺 Because in our society power is distributed unequally among different genders and sexualities, datasets used to train AI imitate this pattern and are also full of biases.


📌 It's even more dangerous when computer systems operate under the disguise of "impartiality," when they are in fact reinforcing patriarchal norms and posing threats for women and people with diverse SOGIESC.


📢 Without proper protocols in how data is obtained and fed into the AI system, AI use is likely to be dictated by discrimination and inequality.


✊ Manushya Foundation urges the tech sector and all involved parties to ensure gender bias is eradicated from artificial intelligence and machine learning. The question of ethical AI cannot be divorced from human rights afforded to marginalized groups, including women and the LGBTIQ+ community.
