Macho, the algorithm?

Are women systematically excluded from certain job offers on Facebook and Google? Cécile Tran-Tien investigated and was able to observe that they don't have access to the same type of employment offers as men. So, are the algorithms sexist? Are they discriminatory or do they simply reflect human bias?

Guests: Cécile Tran-Tien, journalist with RTS, author of "Machorithme"; Axelle Lemaire, former Secretary of State for Digital Affairs and Innovation.

Presented by: Dominique Laresche.
