Devex live: How AI can benefit low-income countries
Artificial intelligence (AI) has never been more prominent on the global agenda. Leaders from the private sector, government and civil society are seeking ways to maximise the benefits and minimise the risks of emerging technologies. While some experts and advocates call for the democratisation of AI, there is still a lot of work to be done in order to translate that vision into a reality everywhere. Devex convenes a live audio chat to ask how AI can benefit low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and to highlight examples of LMI contexts where AI is already having a transformative impact.
Uzma Sulaiman, associate director of Community Jameel, joins the conversation to discuss the Jameel Clinic AI Hospital Network, which sees the MIT Jameel Clinic and Wellcome Trust team up with hospitals around the globe to bring AI into mainstream healthcare. In providing free access to an array of cutting-edge AI tools, the hope is to contribute the unique expertise of Jameel Clinic researchers to empower healthcare systems by accelerating the mainstream usage of AI tools on a global scale.
Other conversation panellists include Bilal Mateen from Wellcome Trust, Brigitte Hoyer Gossalink from Google.org and Abe Tarapani from Atlas AI.
