AI and Equality in Public Administration- a report by anch.AI and the Swedish Gender Equality Authority (jämställdhetsmyndigheten)

22.10.17

The Swedish Gender Equality Agency (Jämställdhetsmyndigheten) and anch.AI have completed a pilot project called “AI and gender equality in the public sector”. In this report, a framework was tested on testbeds from the Social Insurance Agency and the Swedish Tax Agency to screen for gender inequality in AI applications. The project has been done based on the idea that AI can both create and reproduce inequality explaining how risks of gender inequality can be identified and how AI can be developed with a gender equality perspective.

In a statement on the report, Founder Anna Felländer says:

“Proud of being part of this study and as a result being able to offer practical tools to detect gender bias in AI applications. I welcome all public organizations to screen their AI projects for gender bias. We lead the technology not the other way around.”
