Breakthrough days: Beneficial AI + gender data

As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning replace manual design and human oversight, society gains efficiency. However, the inputs used to determine these machine-made choices rely on flawed data that lacks critical information about female preferences, behaviors, and needs.

AI is learning gender bias from humans. Data with implicit gender bias may lead to biased analytics and predictive models, biased inferences and insights, biased policies and solutions, and ultimately a gender-biased world. However, if harnessed for good, AI and machine learning can create a future in which unbiased insights tell the story of all humanity —not just a subset of it.

AI can bring immense benefits to humanity, potentially ending the scarcity and inequality that have haunted the last 10,000 years of human history. It also has risks, some already apparent and others on the horizon - in particular, how do we retain control over entities more intelligent and more powerful than ourselves? And, if we answer that question, then we face another: now that we have a choice, what do we want the future to be like?
