Artificial Intelligence is widely heralded as a key component of the ‘fourth industrial revolution’, a wave of technological innovation which will transform the global economy. The concepts of driver-less cars and facial recognition technology have gained many headlines, but have not been universally welcomed. This week Ben speaks to Allison Gardner, Lecturer in Bioinformatics at Keele University and co-founder of Women Leading in AI, to find out how policy-makers and businesses can work together to ensure AI becomes a force for good. They also discuss the challenge of algorithmic bias, and explore why the tech industry remains so dominated by men.
