Emma Beauxis-Aussalet, assistant professor of ethical computing at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, has been listed on the 100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics 2020 list.

The Women in AI Ethics (WAIE) is a fiscally sponsored project of Social Good Fund, a California nonprofit corporation with a mission to increase recognition, representation, and empowerment of brilliant women.

This initiative launched in 2018 with the publication of the first 100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics list created by Mia Shah-Dand, CEO and Founder of Lighthouse3 an emerging technology research and advisory firm based in Oakland, California to recognize talented women in this space and is now a global online directory. The list is published annually to highlight rising stars as well as aspiring women from non-technical fields as part of our continuing effort to make AI more diverse and accessible for everyone.

We would like to congratulate Emma Beauxis-Aussalet!
