A Global South map of talents, players, knowledge and co-creation hot spots in AI

A recent mapping of AI talents, actors, and knowledge hot spots in the Global South illustrates the extent to which universities, start-ups, and other sectors already engage with AI across Africa. Now, in collaboration with Knowledge 4 All Foundation and the new UNESCO Chair in AI at University College London, IDRC will fund a series of consultations and workshops to build a network of AI researchers and innovators in sub-Saharan Africa. A critical focus for this network will be how AI can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Check the complete report here.
