Gender bias in AI: What it is, why it hurts us, and how to stop it

Join us on August 16 at 3PM BST / 10AM EDT for a virtual event on gender bias in AI.

Brands and gender bias in AI

Why are all the major AI “personal assistants”—from Alexa to Siri—created as females, often with stereotypical personality traits?

Bias in AI and bot personalities is a real issue with profound implications for brands who create and use these tools for consumers and employees.

Who you’ll hear from and what you’ll learn

During the event, you’ll hear from two of the founding members of EqualAI—an initiative dedicated to stopping gender bias in AI—on why this issue is important, how it hurts us, and what can be done about it.

LivePerson founder and CEO Robert LoCascio will share the major lessons we learned from building conversational AI at brands, including emerging practices to stop gender bias. Carnegie Mellon Professor Justine Cassell is renowned for her work developing AI personalities and will share her insight as well.
