Computer Vision News 20 A door to open the way for tomorrow's women to the professions of the future: this is the mission of AIxGirls –Summer Tech Camp. AIxGirls is an Italian summer training camp that offers young female students the tools to be leading actors of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Summer Tech Camp by Darya Majidi, Roberta Russo, Monica Cerutti, Sara Moccia AIxGirls is open to talented Italian high-school female students aged between 17 and 18 years old. The participation in the AIxGirls – Summer Tech Camp gives the students the opportunity to take part in an interesting study program that will touch on the ethical and technical aspects of new technologies relevant to artificial intelligence (AI). The program focuses on AI and data science, with the goal to offer the participants all necessary skills to be an active part of the change and overcome the limits of the gender gap. The Summer Tech Camp was conceived in 2022 by Darya Majidi, CEOof DaxoGroupand founder and president of Donne 4.0 Association. The idea came from the fact that women and girls are underrepresented in the ICT sector. Only 1.4% of graduates in Italy study these subjects and only 14% of them are girls. The idea is therefore to bring the most talented girls closer to the knowledge of AI and aware of its impact on the jobs of the future.
