Artificial intelligence is impacting and will impact Africa as profoundly as any continent on Earth. While some African nations struggle with limited access to the Internet, others are leaping into the digital economy with Smart Cities. Access for all, digital literacy, and capacity-building remain as challenges. Meanwhile, leading tech companies offer African nations digital infrastructure in return for ransoming off their data. Concern has also been voiced that African employment could be devastated over the long-term by the automation of jobs. How through AI and ethics can prospects for all of Africa be improved?
This is the kick-off event for the International Congress for the Governance of Artificial Intelligence (ICGAI) online speaker series. This first event is focused on “Catalyzing Cooperation: Working Together Across AI Governance Initiatives.” Topics include insights from high-level experts and decision-makers on what comprehensive and trustworthy governance looks like, as well as providing an overview of the Global Governance Network for AI (GGN-AI) proposal.
Following up on the AI & Equality Initiative‘s first webinar on the AI and the future of work, Carnegie-Uehiro Fellow Wendell Wallach and Dr. Christina Colclough, founder of The Why Not Lab, will build on that discussion with a conversation about the future of the worker.
Dr. Colclough and The Why Not Lab are leading the way in advising government and industries that will be changed by AI on how to best use that technology to empower workers, and advocate for progressive strategies, approaches, and policies that do so.
