EU ministers set to call for moves to get more women in AI research

Draft text outlines measures governments should take to boost gender equality in artificial intelligence R&D

EU ministers responsible for labour and social policy are set to call on the bloc’s member states to do more to tackle gender inequality in artificial intelligence research, including by improving working conditions and how the tech is used.
