Today I flew to London to speak at the LWT 2019 London Summit. I’m a fan of LesbiansWhoTech and I was honoured to be invited to speak at their London event that this year was hosted at the Facebook London office and attracted around 300 women and non-binary people from all over the UK as well as other part of Europe.
My talk was about: A feminist view on chatbots, voice assistants and AI
I’m a big fan of chatbots, voice assistants and AI. So much so I currently only do ‘conversational customer experience’ projects for my customers.
At the same time I’m concerned about the effect of most bots getting female personas, gender bias in AI training data and the lack of non-male people in product and development teams.
Why? I will explained that during my 12 minute talk.
The event was fantastic and I made some new friends for ever!
