Topic: The Legal (and Ethical) Dimensions of AI
As the AI technology progresses rapidly, lawmakers world over scramble to keep pace with it. Maintaining the right balance between encouraging innovation and protecting the rights and dignity of human-kind becomes critical than ever before. Where should the legal boundaries be drawn? And what should they look like? What happens in cases where there is no clear right or wrong? The session will give a broad overview of how different countries are trying to legislate the use of AI technologies. We will then put forward for discussion different examples of critical ethical dilemmas that the new developments bring to forefront.

Topic: Where Did All the Women Go? Unmasking the Data Gap
In our increasingly data-driven world, access to accurate and representative data is crucial for informed decision-making. However, a significant gap exists when it comes to data about women. This talk aims to shed light on the current situation of missing data for women, exploring the consequences and implications of this data gap across various domains. We will delve into the reasons behind the data disparity, including historical biases, systemic challenges, and underrepresentation. Through compelling examples and insights, we will examine how the absence of women's data perpetuates gender inequalities and hinders progress in all areas of our lives.
This talk will also touch upon on strategies and initiatives aimed at addressing the data gap and promoting inclusivity.
