Sarah Price wins Chelsea Flower Show gold, using AI to set employees' salaries, the Irish referendum on abortion, UK sextortion cases triple in two years and author Sally Bayley.
The garden designer Sarah Price has won gold at Chelsea Flower Show for her wild, romantic garden, which she hopes creates 'an intimate, sheltered oasis of calm.' Jenni asks about her inspiration and her style which is described as 'painterly'.
A British technology company is using artificial intelligence to set their employees' salaries. Satalia is striving for complete transparency with staff members directly influencing their colleagues' wages through an algorithm. Could this work for more businesses and would it narrow the gender pay gap? Jenni is joined by Satalia's organisational psychologist, Angela Yin and Tomasz Obloj, associate professor of strategy at the international business school HEC Paris.
Tomorrow is the Irish referendum on abortion. People will vote on whether to repeal the 8th Amendment or not. But how has Ireland reached this point? Dr Sorcha Ui Chonnachtaigh from Keele University describes the major milestones of the Irish abortion debate, going back 160 years to the Offences Against a Person Act from when the British ruled Ireland.
Jenni is joined by author, Sally Bayley, whose memoir Girl With Dove: A Life Built with Books is published this week. She explains how as a child escaping into the world of books helped make sense of the confusing behaviour of the adults around her and, why at just fourteen, she put herself into care.
More people are falling victim to sextortion or webcam blackmail. This is when people are lured into sending sexually explicit images online only to be blackmailed later by criminal gangs. Latest figures show the numbers have tripled in two years. Jenni speaks to Roy Sinclair from the National Crime Agency's Anti-Kidnap and Extortion Unit.
