The gender gap among AI talent

AI is one of the fastest rising skills in APAC. However this sector misses out on something crucial – a gender balanced workforce. Today in the APAC region only 2 out of every 10 AI professionals are women. This trend is consistent across the different countries in our region. 

The AI workforce of today is building the technology of tomorrow and the norms that will guide the future of AI. As AI touches more and more people, it is important that we develop it with inclusivity in mind.
