Artificial Intelligence

The Open Data Charter is excited to collaborate with Canada’s International Development Research Centre in this exploration of data needs for the use of AI in the global south. What open data is needed now and in the future by AI practitioners for their development initiatives?

We were invited to share approaches for improving government data supply for AI to solve development problems, with a focus on data needs assessment and gaps in knowledge and collaboration between data suppliers and AI practitioners.
