Knowledge sharing

Through the Resource Repository, the Observatory will work to showcase the knowledge outputs of our broader stakeholders and other interested parties looking to promote their contributions to the Observatory’s research agenda on responsible AI in Africa. In this way, African researchers whose valuable insights might otherwise be underexposed, underrepresented and ultimately remain unheard, can be celebrated through the Observatory’s repository - further strengthening our goal of creating a digital knowledge platform that promotes the African voice in the global AI debate.

Over time, the repository will serve policy makers, researchers and industry in discovering resources that reflect the way AI is impacting African societies on the ground, in Africa. This will help interested parties in using topical and relevant information in the way they interact with and make decisions relating to AI usage in their fields. 

We will continuously look to expand this resource repository so be sure to check in frequently. If you would like to have your research included in the repository, please contact us at: info@africanobservatory.ai
