The Department of Computer Science celebrates its 50th anniversary. In those 50 years, there has been an increase in the number of computers, and a small increase in the number of women. Still, the department has maintained a tightknit, small-scale spirit and has the university's only student-run canteen.
According to a new master's thesis the online encyclopedia is not quite as democratic and objective as you might imagine. Women and people of other genders drown in a sea of biographical articles about men.
In literature, men are courageous, rational, and commit acts of violence. Women are typically sexy, pretty and fertile. The gender norms in the books influence how the machines of today learn human language.
The Department of Computer Science at UCPH has jumped to 11th place on the world's best computer science departments list. UCPH is the only European university on the list apart from ETH in Switzerland.
