Encouraging women to take up a digital profession in the future at the BayFid Kick-Off for Batch 3
The topic of the panel discussion was “Artificial intelligence - the Bavarian boost! With trust and responsibility”. The invited speakers from the Bavarian AI Council were Prof. Sami Haddadin (TUM), Dr. Wieland Holfelder (Google), and Dr. Anna Bauer-Mehren (Roche). Together, the Discussion partners talked about the potentials of AI and why our data is so crucial for AI researchers. Also, they discussed the fears of most people regarding AI and explained why it is not possible e.g. for Alexa to know more about us than we do.
BayFiD not only supports young women who already have or aspire to have a digital profession but also aims to encourage more women to take up a digital profession in the future. Therefore the initiative connects young women with already established women and male professionals from different industry and academia areas, who are all working in a digital environment/field and can thereby provide important suggestions and learnings for the young female “digital professionals to be”. BayFiD is under the patronage of the Bavarian Minister-President Dr. Markus Söder.
