Event Details

The 4th Estate Literary Salon is back – just in time for International Women’s Day! Join us at The Book Club, where we will be delving into the thorny topic of Artifical Intelligence with three incredible leading experts in tech and science.


From targeted advertising, to face recognition, to Google Maps, to Alexa - Artificial Intelligence has entered every corner of our lives at an unstoppable pace. But what happens when the ‘science’ behind these seemingly helpful tools is inbuilt with a sexist bias – and what are the ramifications? Our panel of speakers will be discussing how gender intersects with this new wave of technology, the challenges women still face in the industry and the exciting initiatives that are helping to rewrite this narrative.

Our speakers include Tabitha Goldstaub, co-founder of CognitionX, Angela Saini, science journalist and author of Inferior: The true power of women and the science that shows it. The discussion will be chaired by Victoria Turk Senior Editor, Wired UK.
