Acerca del evento

UNESCO invites you to participate at the UNESCO Talk: Spotlight on Gender Equality and Artificial Intelligence in the Caribbean. The UNESCO Talk is an interactive format that aims to discuss how to  imagine, design and develop an emancipatory Artificial Intelligence (AI)  that does not reproduce gender biases and stereotypes, but rather fully  contributes to  achieve  gender  equality. By inviting experts from  different fields, we envision concrete possibilities for the development  of inclusive AI strategies in the Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

UNESCO is the lead UN agency for the elaboration of a Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, and gender equality considerations are also taken into account in this global normative framework. In light of this process, UNESCO recently published the report, Artificial Intelligence and Gender Equality,  which sets forth proposed elements of a Framework on Gender Equality  and AI for further consideration, discussion and elaboration amongst  various stakeholders. It is also crucial to closely examine how AI codes of  ethics can and should be implemented in practical terms, including in  Small Island Developing States.

The  UNESCO Cluster Office for the Caribbean launched in 2019 the Caribbean  Artificial Intelligence Initiative. The Initiative aims to raise  awareness and promote reflection on the opportunities and challenges that AI and its correlated technologies  pose in the Caribbean SIDS.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Saadia Sanchez, Director and Representative, UNESCO Cluster Office for the Caribbean
  • Jennifer Britton, Deputy Programme Manager, Information and Communication Technology   for Development, Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat
  • Ingrid Riley, Founder of Rebel Grrl Media and Digital Media Entrepreneur
  • Jennifer Breslin, Executive Director and Founder of Futuristas

The UNESCO Talk on Gender Equality and AI will take place on Tuesday 1 December 2020. The event will be held in English from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. (GMT -5) and 10:30 a.m. – 11: 30 a.m. (GMT -4). See the countdown to the event.
