Knowledge 4 All Foundation sponsors #AI4D Africa Innovation Awards @Indaba

In July 2019 we issued a call for proposals to invite individuals, grassroots organizations, initiatives, academic, and civil society institutions to submit their proposals for mini-projects within the 2019 Artificial Intelligence for Development (AI4D) initiative funded by IDRC.  We selected 10 winners and invited the Awardees to present their solutions at the AI4D workshop during the Deep Learning Indaba 2019 conference.

Deep Learning Indaba is the most exciting AI event in Africa

Last week more than 700 machine learning researchers from over 30 African countries came together at Kenyatta University in Nairobi, Kenya for the third annual Deep Learning Indaba. Knowledge 4 All Foundation helped fundraising for Indaba in order to support its aims to Strengthen African Machine Learning.

Knowledge 4 All Foundation runs #IJCAI presentations that show appetite for AI and SDGs

At this years edition of IJCAI, we successfully organised a workshop  on the topic of Sustainable Development Goals. The talks presented machine learning solutions in practice, from poaching to building structures, and poverty and wealth. It seems that the topic of SDGs  and AI in development are gaining traction in practice and can have a valid contribution to science. The X5GON project focusing on education and Open Educational Resources was featured with a keynote presentation.

My bluesky project for AI in Europe would be to integrate our abilities as humans to perceive, think and create with the technology and use AI as a tool to make us smarter, to perform things we couldn’t do before.

My blue sky project for AI in Europe is to use its cultural diversity and create a collaborative set of experience that is bringing together very different communities but ones that respect and encourage that individuality in others.

My blue sky project for AI in Europe is to build systems that collaborate and understand people as individuals. That understand what they understand, to see what they see and to see what they don’t see, so that they can offer advice, assistance and services to help them be more effective.
