Synopsis

I would like to share my experience as An AI educator and a founder of a women only organisation - “Coding and More” to address AI education and Bridging the Gender Gap.

We all know that today with AI percolating in every aspect of our life, it’s even more imperative that the AI models that are being used commercially are inclusive and representative across gender and race.

In order to help bring more women in tech, one has to address the obstacles that are coming in the way - and a big one is stereotyping/mindsets and access to AI education.

I would like to weave my conversation around these themes.
