ICO blog: Why addressing AI-driven discrimination is so important

Mar 8th '23

For International Women’s Day, Sophia Ignatidou, Group Manager for AI and Data Science, discusses how bias can arise in AI, the importance of addressing AI-driven discrimination and how we can all work towards equity in these systems. Her blog also appears on the International Women’s Day website.


As a woman who also became an immigrant, the concepts of equity and inclusion have always been close to my heart. My career began as a journalist, working for newspapers across both Greece and the UK. I wanted to have a more meaningful impact on the world and in the hope that a career change would enable this, I decided to study international relations and diplomacy.
