artificial intelligence in low and middle income countries

A roundtable discussion co-organised with the web foundation and the centre for global development (september 2017)

We hosted a roundtable to discuss the implications of our recent work on the economic, social and political impacts of AI in low/middle income countries. Attended by over 25 experts in AI and international development, and featuring a videolink with Kathleen Siminyu, an AI developer in Kenya, we discussed how best to take forward our work on maximising the opportunities and minimising the risks of artificial intelligence.

The notes from the meeting can be found here.
