New Report "Artificial Intelligence and Human Development: Toward a Research Agenda"

Artificial Intelligence and Human Development: Toward a Research Agenda
by Matthew Smith, & Sujaya Neupane, International Development Research Center, Canada, 2018.

Abstract: Like most new technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to exacerbate existing problems, reinforce structural inequalities, and superimpose biases. This paper proposes a proactive research agenda for the ethical and equitable application of AI in the Global South, drawn from a broad overview of technologies associated with AI capabilities, and the opportunities and challenges they present. Three areas are identified in which action can be taken: policies and regulations; inclusive and ethical AI applications; and infrastructure and skills. Within each area, the paper makes recommendations for research necessary to make concrete progress.
