As Women's History Month comes to a close, we take a look at Biased AI Is Real: What Does That Mean for Women? – a new article by Metis Sr. Data Scientist Sophie Searcy, published in InformationWeek. 

"We have a great opportunity to lay a better foundation for the future of AI if we encourage more women and people of diverse backgrounds to dive into data science and other AI fields," she writes. "And those of us already on the front lines should use this time to think about how we’ll fight against bias in our own domains.
