Davor Orlic presenting AI4D @ UNESCO Conference “Principles for AI: Towards a Humanistic Approach?”

We presented the AI4D initiative and specifically the African Network of Excellence with great feedback at the UNESCO global conference “Principles for AI: Towards a Humanistic Approach?”. Building on its record of multi-stakeholder consultation and consensus building, UNESCO brought together stakeholders from the public and private sector, technical community, media and academia, civil society and international organizations. Our presentation came first at the “Challenges and Opportunities of AI panel “describing how development of artificial intelligence in Africa offers both opportunities and challenges as it concerns the global goals for sustainable development.
