Women in AI (WAI) in collaboration with Vinnova Swedish Innovation agency published a research paper in November 2020 on AI for Gender Equality in September 2020.
Twelve expert interviews, one global, three local workshops, and desk research were conducted within the framework of five identified gender equality issues: gender-related violence (1), health inequalities (2), pay gap (3), unpaid work (4) and uneven funding (5).
Key opportunities lie in awareness and intervention through blind spot detection, education and self-help, as well as intervention through autonomous action. A call to action, for e.g. hackathons, is recommended specifically for areas 1, 2, and 3. More conceptual, ground work is needed for areas 4 and 5, for instance, (academic) research proposals. A transdisciplinary approach with strategic stakeholder management is key. The time to act is now.
