Call for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for AI governance in low-middle income countries (CIFAR and IDRC)
Deadline: 2 November 2020
For this call, CIFAR and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada are seeking a global team of cross-sectoral, interdisciplinary experts to design and develop solutions for governing responsible artificial intelligence (AI) in low-middle income countries.
AI has the potential to transform the way we live and work. However, it can also play a role in deepening systemic inequalities based on race, gender and socioeconomic status.
Low-middle income countries face unique socio-political and economic opportunities and challenges. AI-enabled technologies, bolstered by governance solutions, such as new tools, practices and policies, could support the deployment of responsible AI that is ethical, transparent and sustainable.
CIFAR and IDRC will provide funding and logistical support for one successful network over three years to design, develop and implement a novel AI governance solution. The successful Solution Network receives three years of dedicated, flexible funding support for eligible research and development activities.
The Solution Network will include a team of at least six international, cross-sectoral experts, with at least one member from the low-middle income setting where the solution is applied and at least one member from Canada.
Deadline: 2 November 2020, 23:59 EST/Colombian time
