The impact of AI on Africa's development
We focus on gender and other context-related exclusionary factors and their intersection with responsible AI. By responsible AI, we mean equity in data use, algorithm creation, expertise frameworks and AI practice policies. Our network addresses the cross-cutting issues of AI, gender and development. The network focuses on sub-Saharan Africa with a medium-term goal of gender inclusion and a longer-term goal of gender equality.
The GRAIN network is part of the AI4D programme, and its initial phase is supported by Canada's International Development Research Centre and the Swedish International Development Agency.
