As part of a collaboration between the AI Media Group, the ITU Geneva and the Alliance for AI, we have created a webinar panel debate to explore the potential impacts of artificial intelligence in Africa
Many countries are developing AI strategies to bridge digital divides and to remain competitive in the global economy. This webinar will explore Africa’s varying AI strategies as well as their impact on the continent’s economic growth. Our panelists will provide regional success stories that explain the opportunities and challenges in deploying these strategies, with discussions on what their impact will be on the future of AI in Africa.
Members of the panel will include;
EdTech & Human Capital Development
Nick Bradshaw, CEO at the AI Media Group stated, “The COVID pandemic has meant that the AI for Good Global Summit has moved online as a series of smaller focused webinars discussing key topics and issues driving major global change, UN SDGs and the role AI can play in helping us reach those goals. In doing this we also need to be mindful of the challenges and issues we have to overcome to harness such technologies in an ethical, inclusive and non-biased way to ensure this revolutionary new technology paradigm is harnessed in a manner that does not cause harm or has unintended consequences. Strategy, policy, ethics, deployment challenges and change management sit at the heart of this debate and its going to be exciting to listen to this diverse panel as they discuss the impacts of AI in Africa.”
About the AI 4 Good Global Summit
The future will see large parts of our lives influenced by Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Machines can execute repetitive tasks with complete precision, and with recent advances in AI, machines are gaining the ability to learn, improve and make calculated decisions in ways that will enable them to perform tasks previously thought to rely on human experience, creativity, and ingenuity.
We have less than 10 years to solve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). AI holds great promise by capitalizing on the unprecedented quantities of data now being generated on sentiment behaviour, human health, commerce, communications, migration and more.
The AI for Good series is the leading action-oriented, global & inclusive United Nations platform on AI. The Summit is organized every year in Geneva by the ITU with XPRIZE Foundation in partnership with over 35 sister United Nations agencies, Switzerland and ACM. The goal is to identify practical applications of AI and scale those solutions for global impact. Learn more about the AI 4 Good Global Summit https://aiforgood.itu.int/
