Faced with the challenges of digitalization and more specifically of artificial intelligence, which has taken an even more important place in the context of the health crisis, it appeared to Arborus the urgency and importance to ensure that automatic decisions based on the processing of algorithms do not discriminate against women due, for example, to the quality of the data used or the design of the code, a field still dominated by men.
This is why, Arborus, launched on September XNUMXth XNUMX, in line with the International Charter for Inclusive AI, on XNUMXth April XNUMX in partnership with the Orange Group, the GEEIS Label, under the high patronage of the French Secretary of State for Digital Affairs Cedric O, d’Elisabeth Moreno, Minister in charge of gender equality and with the support of Delphine O, Ambassador and Secretary-General of the UN World Conference on Women, and Nicole Ameline, Vice-President of the UN CEDAW.
