The thematic area embraces the founding values of the city • platform for excellence of experimentation and innovation • which, as it is today, is never a laboratory for sustainable transition: innovation, inclusiveness, (re) digital literacy

Fairness is an indispensable condition in this historical period to regenerate a system that sees a more harmonious relationship between all its parts. Sustainability is increasingly a step of knowledge between generations, at a time when society, economy and the environment have much more levels of interaction between them.

Milano Digital Week is the first Italian event to put gender discrimination at the centre of the technological world. The same racist stereotypes, misogyns and homophobes that we witness in the social context are amplified by the codes of software and artificial intelligence. Among these, gender biases in some technologies are likely to undermine the digital existence of half the world’s population, causing real damage and undermining rights and freedoms. A paradoxical power, that of the Islamic Republic, that risks to cancel important social achievements and not to keep up with progress. In the event \”Tech Gender Bias” (20 March at 15.00) promoted by Bird&Bird we start from these considerations to tell the different causes and drift of gender biases. In a society where the classification, analysis and prediction of our choices and habits are increasingly entrusted to machines and algorithms, the impact these processes have on people should be of primary importance.
