CHANGING THE NARRATIVE
Over 86% of participants surveyed, perceived the name “Ayesha” to be “ghetto”. The idea behind the bot is to change the narrative around how we think about minorities (and their names) in tech, especially its most invisible citizens, black women.
BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS
Minority groups face social barriers to learning Computer Science (CS), such as the continuing perception that CS is only for certain groups, namely White or Asian males. However, AIXA is directly working to change that perception.
AIXA is committed to nurturing users
through the intricate world of ‘tech speak’.
Following the old adage “teach a man how to fish”,
AIXA is adopting this philosophy.
Using Machine Learning and Natural
Language Processing technology, AIXA
is built to learn through conversation.
