Africa AI4D Policy Project

Do you believe in digital equality and recognise the need for data justice
to underpin the adoption of advanced technologies for them to be truly
developmental and transformative? Are you interested in how, as a continent
and globally, we can promote Just AI – and in conducting research on how
this can be achieved through ensuring rights-preserving regulatory
frameworks? How can we create a safe, secure, and trusted environment for
the developmental application of AI and what economic and social
regulations are required to ensure a better distribution of the
opportunities for innovation as well as mitigation of risks associated with
the uneven impacts of known harms?

RIA’s Africa AI4D Policy Project invites applications for fellowships of
three, six or 12 months. The research agenda for the next three months will
focus on Just AI in three thematic areas:

– Sustainable development and the circular economy
– Security and trust
– Data and algorithmic governance

*How do I apply?*
