The draft opinion points out that women are significantly underrepresented in the AI sectors. The rapporteur calls for policies targeted at increasing the participation of women in the fields related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI has great potential to promote gender equality provided that conscious and unconscious bias are eliminated. Education, culture programmes and audiovisual contents are a fundamental tool for combatting gender stereotypes. 80 amendments to the draft opinion have been tabled.
