Irakli Beridze

The UNICRI Centre for AI and Robotics has always been active in identifying a need to defend and empower gender equality. In our field, while advocating for accountable, fair, transparent and explainable use of Artificial Intelligence, I am confident that, if appropriately designed, there is a great potential for the use of AI to improve gender equality and combat discrimination.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • To support and participate in international events aimed at improving gender equality. For example, in The Hague in 2020 I will be participating in a panel on "AI and Diversity" during the Winter Academy on AI and International Law as well as a gender equality event with the UN Youth Impact regarding SDG #5.

  • To improve gender equality in international diplomacy and the technology community through addressing the topic during the organization of and participation in all events, initiatives, activities and collaborations. I will continue to commit myself to the IGC Panel Parity Pledge and to encourage others to commit to equality.
