The African Network on Responsible AI 

The creation and facilitation of an African network of AI actors forms part of the African Observatory’s overall vision. We aim to establish a sustainable and expanding network of researchers, research institutions, thought leaders, AI practitioners and policy-makers with a centralised platform through which stakeholders can regularly demonstrate, debate and share their skills and capacity in research and policy on AI in Africa. The network is a communications hub for relevant publications, presentations, workshops and seminars that engage with the various research interests and thematics of the African Observatory, broadly construed, and enable a longer-term and sustainable ecosystem for multi-stakeholder engagement around AI on the Continent.
