Workshop Toward a Network of Excellence in Artificial Intelligence for Development (AI4D) in sub-Saharan Africa
The intention of the Workshop within the AI4D initiaitve in sub-Saharan Africa is to scope out the African ML/AI landscape, provide inputs for an African AI research roadmap, and support the development of cross-continent cooperation on AI for sustainable development. It is anticipated that the outcome of the workshop will be a Network of Excellence on AI for sub Saharan African researchers who focus on applications and research relating to AI and human development.
This effort is part of a global AI4D initiative, which we hope will shape the use of AI in the global south, through strengthening regional collaboration and advancing global thematic initiatives. Please see IDRC’s white paper and the IDRC website for more information about the AI4D initiative.
