Researchers at Musk’s San Francisco lab are using the news aggregation and discussion site to increase the bank of content available for the AI to study.“And of course [these disruptions] disproportionately affects our world’s girls.” Girls and young women “are 90 percent more likely to be out of school in conflict zones than elsewhere and this has a monumental effect on their lives,” she continued, explaining that “more-educated girls and women are more likely to marry later, have more agency over their sexual and reproductive health, and ultimately lead healthier and more economically productive lives.”“For one minute, put on a pair of glasses and call them your ‘gender glasses,’” Patty Alleman, senior gender and development adviser at UNICEF, asked the audience. “We are from a first-world nation so we can’t completely relate with a refugee woman,” Esmerelda, 22, added, “but there is that sense of connection between us as young women.” “And certainly for us, working on a health care app,” Kate, 21, said, “we have more of an understanding of the needs of women whereas a group of men night not understand that.” (“There were a few sort of heavy-blinking moments when talking with the male [group leaders] about periods and menstrual pads,” Patty Alleman added later, “but not, like, total disregard.
