Equitable AI and Africa's Futures

Event Details

Tuesday, March 16, 2021
11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

AI4Afrika invites you to attend and engage with a panel of scholars and industry leaders who will discuss ways artificial intelligence can be leveraged for social good.

In this conversation, we will emphasize the need for a human-centric approach to AI encapsulated in the African idea of uBuntu: ‘I am because we are.’

How can AI be used for social good? How can AI help battle systemic racism and bias? How can African-centered AI solve African problems? Join our panel discussion to find answers to these questions and more.

This event will be held on Zoom. Registration is required.

This event is sponsored by UW–Madison’s African Studies Program and American Family Insurance Data Science Institute.
