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.
As a result of COVID-19, closing gender gaps in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is a bigger challenge than ever before. The Gender in STEM Research Initiative aims to champion women’s contributions to science, and to society at large.
The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) invite proposals from independent policy research organizations across Sub-Saharan Africa that are committed to using research to inform and influence national-level artificial intelligence (AI) policies and research ecosystems.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and data science are key tools to support public health responses to COVID-19. IDRC and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) are providing up to CA$10 million to support AI and data research and innovations in the Global South to assist the COVID-19 pandemic response and recovery.
