One thing that's needed for African ownership of technology is local expertise. So I was very happy that quite a number of our participants talked about how working in AI gave them the expertise to provide support and mentorship. Check the report here: bit.ly/3QlvCOF
While working on our final report in our #AfricanWomenInAI series we interacted with women #AI researchers who shared some of their favorable experiences while working in this field. Find this report here👉bit.ly/AfricanWomenInAI #ArtificialIntelligence

Challenging read about non-dominant languages and decolonising the digtial landscape (and implicitly, much of NLP). Includes clear calls to action, like consult Indigenous groups; support Indigenous digital platforms; support non-Latin scripts.
How can we best integrate more languages in a supposedly shared global good? Our newest #whitepaper analyzes language in our digital landscape 👉bit.ly/LanguageColoniality #LanguageColoniality

Getting the opportunity to join @PollicyOrg as a research fellow was a career-defining moment for me. I got the opportunity to challenge myself and watch myself grow. And one of my highlights was taking part in writing the white paper:lnkd.in/eGB-4WHD #DigitalRights.

No digital commons, no open knowledge without all languages included. A language is a nation.

I have been working closely with @PollicyOrg for sometime so I couldnt leave #Kampala 🇺🇬 without stopying by their office. I reaffirmed the importance of civic-tech, the value of involving policy makers, and we mapped new activities under our @OmukaHub x @PollicyOrg partnership.
