In this panel discussion, we will deal with the topics of Digital technologies and AI that can be used by women-owned businesses to streamline operations, enhance customer experiences, and gain insights into market trends. We will try to name the challenges that women entrepreneurs face and how Digital technologies and also AI can be used to overcome them. On the other hand, we will not forget about the ethical considerations of using AI and the need for responsible and inclusive AI development.
To achieve this, we have invited the best speakers in the field - local women entrepreneurs targeting global markets, and experts on AI to provide real-world examples of how digital technologies and AI itself are currently being used in their businesses and research.
Our aim will be to highlight the potential of these technologies to support women-owned businesses in achieving their goals.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital technologies (DT) are playing an increasingly important role in empowering women in business. In this panel discussion, we will discuss the ways in which these technolgies are contributing to the empowerment of women in business. The main areas on which we will be focusing are the following:
- Improved Efficiency: AI&DT can help improve the efficiency of business operations by automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks. This can free up time for women to focus on more critical tasks and make better use of their skills.
- Better Decision Making: AI&DT can provide women with valuable insights and data that can help them make better business decisions. This can help women to compete more effectively in the marketplace and achieve better business outcomes.
- Enhanced Customer Experience: AI&DT can help businesses to personalize their customer interactions, which can lead to better engagement and satisfaction. Women, in particular, can benefit from this as they tend to be more attuned to customer needs and preferences.
- Access to Finance: AI-based financial technologies such as crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending platforms can help women entrepreneurs access capital more easily. This can be especially helpful for women who may face more difficulty obtaining traditional financing.
- Overcoming Bias: AI&DT can help overcome gender bias by removing human decision-making from certain processes. This can help ensure that women are not unfairly discriminated against in hiring, promotions, and other areas.
