Snapshot of artificial intelligence reveals challenges
A periodic review of the artificial intelligence industry revealed the potential pitfalls of outsourcing our problems for technology to solve rather than addressing the causes, and of allowing outdated predictive modeling to go unchecked. As part of Stanford's ongoing 100-year study on artificial intelligence, known as the AI100, two workshops recently considered the issues of care technologies and predictive modeling to inform the future development of AI technologies.

Conversation boosts women’s participation at scientific meetings
Not only are women underrepresented at scientific meetings, they participate less than men in question-and-answer sessions, self-limiting their involvement and participation. But a public discussion of the problem helps. Recently, some prominent men in science have publicly declared they wouldn't attend scientific meetings that don't adequately represent women, but a new study suggests the problem isn't just representation - women also don't participate at the same level as men, even when they are well represented.
