Forgotten Narratives in AI: Africa’s journey to AI future

None
As the development, adoption and regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are shaped by cultural values, beliefs and moral perceptions, narratives from the Global North continue to be dominant in the global AI discourse. Africa’s diverse philosophical, religious, political and linguistic traditions that can capture alternative narratives of what AI can and should be are almost forgotten. This discussion session will focus on Africa’s forgotten AI narratives for effective understanding of AI and critical engagement with it. We hope to share insights on what can shape responsible AI practices in Africa; highlighting the implications of African narratives on how AI can be aligned to achieve relevant SDGs in Africa.
