Artificial Intelligence is arguably the hottest new technology, both within the tech industry and in popular media. As well as being an extremely quickly growing field, it also seems to offer endless possibilities for future development and applications. For software development teams, AI Agents offer the chance to significantly increase productivity through training specialized Agents to act as assistant programmers. However, as powerful and useful as these agents can be, they are still far from fully replacing human software developers. Fully harnessing the potential of AI Agents in Software development will require a proper understanding of both their benefits and limitations.

Have you ever noticed that when you use Google's search algorithm to look for pictures of doctors, it predominantly displays images of males at the top? Similarly, a search for nurse pictures often results in a majority of female figures. This observation raises intriguing questions about the underlying biases within search algorithms. Are these algorithms unintentionally perpetuating stereotypes? What factors influence their decision-making processes amid the vast amounts of data they process? Understanding how algorithms make decisions shows us a complicated world where questions about bias and discrimination become important. This leads us to think about how machines might unintentionally pick up and continue biases in their decision-making.
