On 22 April we organised our second BOZAR LAB Arts & Tech webinar, in which we aimed to give more visibility to reflections and discussions at the crossing borders of arts, artificial intelligence, and green deal challenges in different African countries. (Re)discover it here.
During this second webinar, our speakers presented mapping of the state of the latest developments of AI in Africa today, and discussed opportunities for the future of African tech. The current AI is designed for Africans but not by Africans. Yet, the continent has a vibrant scene of communities and start-ups. Faced with challenges specific to the continent, for example lacking data to train the machines, African data scientists develop with ingenuity new approaches to develop AI.
