AI Governance in Developing Nations – Elements for a Roadmap by Access Partnership

AI has the potential to solve some of the most pressing challenges of emerging economies in core sectors such as agriculture, healthcare and public services. However, ensuring the benefits of AI are within the reach of those who need it the most requires a concerted effort of several stakeholder groups. Having a robust governance framework for AI is only one piece in the puzzle, but it is a fundamental one. Join our workshop to learn from AI developers, governments and users what policies should be considered to capitalise on the AI potential.
