What: Evaluating AI Innovation Systems in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: The Case of Tunisia
When: Wednesday, 11. December 2019, 15:00 – 15:45 CEST
Who: Toni Kaatz-Dubberke (GIZ)
Given the trend for concentration of the input factors for artificial intelligence (AI) technologies (talent, data, computing power) in the hands of a few companies and states, low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) risk to become permanently dependent on them. At the same time, decreasing costs for technology components, the availability of computing power through the cloud, open online courses for learning to develop AI and a rising number of open data initiatives allow innovators from LMICs to apply the technology to their problems and business environments from the bottom up. In a first ever attempt to systematically evaluate how and why AI innovation takes place in individual LMICs, Toni Kaatz-Dubberke presents evidence from Tunisia and derives general policy recommendations for supporting AI innovation systems in LMICs.
