A New Approach to Tech Algorithms (From Africa)

March 11, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am CDT

Algorithms have become a mainstay of modernity. But not all algorithms are created equal. Hidden biases may result in missed opportunities, failed companies and misinterpretation or a lack of recognition of local contexts. Panelists will discuss the need for locally created algorithms and provide lessons for AI developers based on their experiences creating algorithms in Africa for Africa and competing with algorithms destined for use on the continent but created and deployed from outside.
