We are happy to announce that the IDEAS Lab is a Supporting Partner of the Women in AI initiative by the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Research Consortium (NORA).
NORA aspires to increase diversity and the visibility of women in the field of AI. By encouraging diversity in AI, NORA aims to improve the position of marginalized groups and inspire a more inclusive agenda in the field of AI to ensure equality for future generations.
Doors open at 13:30 - coffee & refreshments will be provided!
Time and place: Mar. 8, 2023 2:00 PM–5:00 PM, Domus Bibliotheca, Karl Johans gt. 47, Oslo.
Together with our partners, NORA has dedicated efforts towards supporting universities, university colleges, research institutions, startups, companies and individual researchers who wish to discuss and address the diversity and gender gap in AI research, education and in industry. By focusing on the topic and by providing a platform for open discussion, NORA aims to develop and support initiatives that can increase the inclusion of a more diverse workforce in AI. Together, we can inspire a more inclusive agenda within the otherwise male-dominated field of AI and ensure equal access and equal opportunities for future generations. Our collective goal should be to bring awareness by promoting female role models, and by portraying the breadth of opportunities for AI in society at large. On the 8th of March, we invite you to join us for an afternoon event where we discuss the situation of gender and diversity in AI today and measures needed in effort to tackle inequality and mitigate bias in the field of artificial intelligence. During this Women and AI event, we will bring together representatives from industry and research to address the gender disparity in AI in Norway and the world today, and discuss initiatives to ensure inclusivity and diversity in AI for the future.
