#Infinite Loop in Python

Print (“Every Single Day is Women’s Day”)
While more than half of our team members are outstanding women, at Beirut AI, we cherish you every day, dear Woman. You are strong, courageous, capable, inspiring, irreplaceable, and above all, appreciated. Away from corny slogans on that specific day, we want you to know that we admire your resilience, your leadership, your compassion, your assertiveness, and your ability to touch everything with kindness - a virtue we need today more than anything else, more than any time before. You create life amidst wars, and you voice the truth amidst the cacophony of the world.
Artificial Intelligence, just like many other fields, is dominated by men. According to the World Economic Forum report women make up only 26 percent of data and AI positions in the workforce. Many women, nevertheless, have positioned themselves and pioneered in the field. Here are three of the many outstanding women who have contributed to AI innovation and demonstrated exceptional leadership.
Joy Buolamwini: Founder, Algorithmic Justice League
Her ground-breaking work on algorithmic bias as a doctoral student at MIT exposed the racial and gender biases hidden in facial recognition algorithms to the rest of the world. As a result of Buolamwini's research, Amazon, Microsoft, and IBM all halted their face recognition services. The documentary Coded Bias presents Buolamwini's work in a compelling way.
Rana el Kaliouby: CEO & Co-Founder, Affectiva
Rana el Kaliouby has made it her life's work to improve AI's emotional intelligence. Emotion AI is credited to Kaliouby as a pioneering field. She co-founded Affectiva, an MIT spinout company, in 2009 to develop machine learning systems that can interpret human emotions. Today, 25% of Fortune 500 companies employ the company's technology, which includes media analytics, consumer behavioural research, and automotive use cases.
"My life's work is about humanizing technology before it dehumanizes humans" Kaliouby says of her big-picture goal.
Daphne Koller: CEO & Founder, insitro
Daphne Koller's diverse career exemplifies the symbiotic relationship between academics and industry that is a defining feature of artificial intelligence.
Koller has been a professor of machine learning at Stanford since 1995. She and fellow Stanford professor and AI pioneer Andrew Ng co-founded education technology business Coursera in 2012. Today, Coursera is a $2.6 billion ed tech giant.
At the end, we'd like to encourage you to keep pushing forward in the field, to develop, create, dare, lead, and to know that you have our entire support!Reference Toews, R. (2020, December 13). 8 Leading Women In The Field Of AI. Forbes.
