OxAI Aims to Ensure that AI works for the benefit of everyone.
At OXAI, we recognise that Diversity and Inclusion are key to the development and innovation of AI for long-term social benefit. As part of our role in creating an Artificial Intelligence community, we are currently running a range of projects aimed at connecting and educating students from underrepresented backgrounds in AI, such as BAME, Womxn, LGBTQ+ and Disabled students. We also work in collaboration with various organisations to increase the accessibility of AI beyond Oxford.
The Mentorship program is for University of Oxford students who feel underrepresented in the AI/tech industries. Students are paired with a mentor from companies like Microsoft, HACE, and QuantumBlack who coaches them in small groups or 1-1 for 8 weeks. The program is free and is open to any Oxford student. The 2nd round of the scheme will begin in January 2022. New mentorship opportunities with established companies and start-ups are always welcome.
A speaker panel with U.S. and U.K. Microsoft offices about the state of D&I in the AI/tech industries. The event is set to occur in February 2022.
This is a group dedicated to students as a space to spark discussion revolving around Diversity in AI, connect with others from the student community and find about new opportunities!
More information to come soon.
The D&I team is working on creating ethical guidelines for the Society.
