Every day, Africa’s burgeoning community of data scientists, machine learning specialists, and researchers is exploring how artificial intelligence (AI) can contribute to tackling local challenges south of the Sahara.
This project will support the Artificial Intelligence for Development Africa (AI4D Africa) partnership by covering the operational costs for the partnership, including salaries and benefits, office costs, and travel for IDRC staff.
Artificial intelligence (AI) applications are being built and applied in almost every area of social and economic life, but there is concern that if AI is applied without appropriate policies and safeguards, it could have far-reaching consequences on human rights, inequality, sustainability, and well-being.
This project aims to assess the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on national economies and determine the effectiveness of current and potential policy responses in 11 developing countries around the world.
This project will not only analyze how young people are affected by COVID-19, it will examine how they can be key actors in the response, mitigation, and evaluation efforts of pandemic policies and actions.
This collaborative project will contribute to policies and strategies to address the immediate and longer-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on economies, social cohesion, and governance in Benin, Burkina Faso, and South Africa.
The overall objective of this project is to promote the uptake of research findings from the cohort of projects “Combatting sexual and gender-based violence and improving adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights in West Africa”.
