Establishment of Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) Women Committee

June 20
23:13 2022

Women continue to play an important role in the advancements of science, technology and society. They have multiple identities and they play different roles. They are scientists, wives, mama, etc., and they are also themselves. Women scientists are making science that affects the world, and these women scientists, who continue to set new heights in research, are contributing to the world of research with their outstanding innovation. Women power is making change and impact.

Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) recently established the AAIA Women Committee, which is the first committee of AAIA, to promote their greater roles in all areas. AAIA values and encourages women to pursue careers in science and artificial intelligence. Our current female members are outstanding scientists with extensive influence worldwide, who have been playing important roles in the field of artificial intelligence. They have extensive work and research experience, and they have made great contributions to technological innovation and trained next generation of scientists.

The AAIA Women Committee is committed to building an environment that supports the career development of women scientists. We hope that by promoting international exchanges and cooperation among women scientists as well as expanding their research and academic networks, we can better help them with showing talents and playing roles. We welcome more women scientists to join AAIA.

The Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) was incorporated in Hong Kong in 2021. The Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) is an academic, non-profit and non-governmental organization voluntarily formed 691 academicians worldwide. The Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) fellows come from Stanford University, Princeton University, MIT, California Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Columbia University, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, University of Melbourne, Sydney University, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore National University, Peking University, Tsinghua university, Zhejiang University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and other universities, as well as the world’s top scientists in AI related fields from Google, Microsoft, IBM, Alibaba, Huawei, JD.com and other high-tech companies. The Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) fellows including academicians (such as member of US National Academy of Sciences, member of US National Academy of Engineering, member of the Academia Europea, member of Chinese Academy of Sciences, member of Chinese Academy of Engineering, member of Canadian Academy of Engineering, member of Royal Academy of Engineering, member of Singapore Academy of Engineering, etc.), IEEE Fellow, ACM Fellow, AAAI Fellow, IAPR Fellow, etc. The Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) aims to build a broad AI industry, bringing together scientists and entrepreneurs related to AI applications to develop AI industries, including the AI Ocean, AI Transportation, AI Computing, AI Communication, AI Robot, AI Education, AI Agriculture, AI Finance, AI Medicine, AI Energy, and dozens of AI application fields. The main mission of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) is to strengthen scientists in the field of AI and other fields worldwide to promote the development and application of AI through academic research, academic exchanges, science education, science exhibitions, academic conferences, academic publications, summer/winter camps and other activities.

The Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) Wuhan Branch was established on 11 June 2022. Other chapters, such as New York, Los Angeles, London, Melbourne, Berlin, Rome, Kolkata, Beijing and Shenyang are being organized. It is believed that in the near future, AAIA will develop into an international organization with greater influence. We welcome scientists and companies to join us in advancing breakthroughs in artificial intelligence technology to better serve the world.
