My Morning View: Brotopia

“Women are behind in other fields too, in areas as disparate as stand-up comedy, film direction, music composition, and aviation. But it’s hard to argue that any of these are having a greater influence on our world than technology. The machines and devices and the programs that run on them have become a ubiquitous part of our daily lives. All that world-bending technology has been created largely by men. This technology is disrupting businesses from agriculture to manufacturing, finance, and real estate. And it’s not slowing down. We face a near-term future of autonomous cars, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence, and yet we are at risk of embedding gender bias into all of these new algorithms ... If robots are going to run the world, or at the very least play a hugely critical role in our future, men shouldn’t be programming them alone. The scarcity of women in an industry that is so forcefully reshaping our culture simply cannot be allowed to stand.”
