On 10 September 2020, FEMM Members voted on the opinion on "Artificial intelligence in education, culture and the audiovisual sector", which points out that women are significantly underrepresented in the AI sectors and calls for policies targeted at increasing the participation of women in the fields related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and AI. AI has great potential to promote gender equality, provided that conscious and unconscious bias are eliminated. Education, culture programmes and audiovisual contents are a fundamental tool for combatting gender stereotypes. The opinion was adopted by 28 votes in favour to 3 votes against with 4 abstentions.
