Women in the United States are more skeptical than men about some uses of artificial intelligence, particularly the possible widespread use of driverless passenger vehicles, according to an analysis of Pew Research Center survey data collected in November 2021.
Across a range of possible AI applications, women are consistently more likely than men to express concern about computer programs executing those tasks. For example, 43% of women say they would be very or somewhat concerned if AI programs could diagnose medical problems, versus 27% of men.
Women and men express different attitudes about autonomous cars. Roughly four-in-ten men (37%) say driverless cars are a good idea for society, while 17% of women say the same. On a similar note, a majority of women (54%) say they would not feel comfortable sharing the road with a driverless passenger vehicle if their use becomes widespread. Only 35% of men say the same.
