The world-leading AI & Big Data Expo Global is returning to Olympia London 17-18th March 2020 and is bringing together 9000 technology enthusiasts to explore the entire eco-system of Blockchain, IoT, AI & Big Data, Cyber Security & Cloud, as well as the newest addition; 5G. Each event will showcase the next generation technologies and strategies for the future by providing user cases from industry leaders and 300+ exhibitors demonstrating the latest technology. The AI & Big Data Expo has been embraced by the AI & Big Data community with notable experts and leading organisations, such as European Space Agency, Microsoft, Unilever, Google, Pfizer, and Amazon Alexa to name just a few, joining the conference agenda. The Global Expo will explore the industries that are set to be most affected by this new technology in 2020. These industries include manufacturing, retail, financial services, legal services, healthcare, insurance, energy, music, government, real estate and more.

We are all aware that the percentage of women working within these technology-based industries is significantly lower than men and has been for as long as we can remember. In education, IT and technology was deemed a heavily male dominated subject and it’s safe to say from there it has been an uphill battle for women to join the ‘boys club’.

‘We’re using the power of intelligent digital to see beyond the gender gap, to a world where women can reimagine our future’ (PwC 2020). Closing the gender gap and increasing diversity benefits businesses enormously in both their economic and social environments. Diversity in any creative space is imperative for development and therefore, at the AI & Big Data Expo, we are delighted that our agenda will feature some of the leading women in these sectors:
