Contrat doctoral : "Gender issues as an ethical perspective for the Learning machine: The case of video game design" (2019-2022)

Présentation de la proposition de contrat :

Gender studies would demonstrate that the design of multiplayer video games (aesthetic, semiotic and moral dimensions) contributes to the integration of non-emancipatory habits for women (Jo, Jason, 2005 ; Carr, 2006 ; Lignon, 2015).

The societal risk would therefore be that the predictive machine learning applied to the design of video games would be based on mono-cultural gendered habits.

The aim of this PhD is to first analyse how the machine learning in the gaming field risk to reproduce gender stereotypes. In a second step, the perspective will be to build the conditions for cooperation in information and communication sciences/ethics and informatics in order to develop algorithms that do not reproduce gender stereotypes in the design of video games.
