You might be wondering what AI is. AI refers to machines that are programmed to perform tasks and solve problems in ways that mimic the human brain.

Although the job market is looking lucrative for AI, women find it hard to break into. There’s a lack of representation among not only executives but developers and coders as well – no surprise there!
