Fonds communs de données localisées pour l’intelligence artificielle

Et si l’intelligence artificielle pouvait apprendre à l’aide de données localisées qui seraient accessibles à tous ?

Open for Good améliore les données d’apprentissage IA localisées en Afrique, en Asie et au-delà

L’un des principaux obstacles à l’innovation localisée en matière d’intelligence artificielle (IA) en Afrique et en Asie est le manque de données d’apprentissage localisées et de bonne qualité. C’est pourquoi Open for Good met l’accent surles données d’apprentissage localisées en Afrique, en Asie etau-delà. Les initiatives œuvrant en faveur de l’accès à l’IA négligent souventles données d’apprentissage localement pertinentes et les questions techniquesqui y sont liées. Pour répondre à ce besoin, Open for Good offre donc uneplateforme de coordination et d’échange de bonnes pratiques.

Accroître la disponibilité et la qualité des données d’apprentissage en libre accès

Données d’apprentissage localisées pour le développement de l’intelligence artificielle et de l’apprentissage automatique

Données d’apprentissage représentatives et non discriminatoires

IA localisée pour améliorer les services publics, renforcer le secteur privé et promouvoir le développement durable

Comment atteignons-nous nos objectifs ?

Les membres de l’alliance mettent des ensembles de données d’apprentissage à la disposition de tous.

Nous mettons des ensembles de données d’apprentissage à la disposition de tous, nous aidons à trouver les données d’apprentissage existantes et contribuons à leur mise à jour.

Nous facilitons la coordination et les échanges de bonnes pratiques et d’idées

Nous réunissons les membres de la communauté pour discuter des dernières évolutions dans le domaine de la collecte d’ensembles de données et des applications de l’IA, ainsi que pour encourager l’élaboration de normes, là où le besoin s’en fait sentir, et pour partager les exemples de réussites.

L’alliance sensibilise le public aux avantages que présentent les données d’apprentissage locales, objectives et en libre accès.

Qu’est-ce que Open for Good ?

Notre alliance aspire à surmonter l’un des principaux obstacles au développement de solutions IA localisées: disposer de données d’apprentissage localisées de qualité suffisante.

C’est pourquoi nous nous engageons pour que les données d’apprentissage soient libre d’accès, non discriminatoires et localisées pour l’intelligence artificielle et l’apprentissage automatique. Notre objective principal s'inscrit dans ce contexte : créer des fonds communs de données d’apprentissage.

<A+> Alliance for Inclusive Algorithms

The <A+> Alliance for Inclusive Algorithms is a global, multidisciplinary and feminist coalition of academics, activists and technologists prototyping the future of Artificial Intelligence & algorithmic decision-making. We work at the regional and multilateral level to transform norms and standards that guarantee a future of coded inclusion with gender and race equality at their center. We do this in order to achieve and strengthen robust, resilient 21st century democracies.

Our immediate focus is the debiasing of the dataset and therefore the algorithm.  Our goal is the active correction of bias by means of data, algorithm & model, one piece of which is the active collection of inclusive, local, and feminist data so that we all can thrive.

The American University in Cairo

Established in February 2010, Access to Knowledge for Development (A2K4D) is a center for research on knowledge, digital technologies and inclusive development in Egypt, the Middle East and Africa. Based at the American University in Cairo’s School of Business, A2K4D has become a knowledge hub for interdisciplinary research on digital platforms, open business models, flexible intellectual property, open innovation, open data, artificial intelligence and inclusion in the digital economy in Egypt and the region. Our research aims at impacting policy as it offers academic contribution to an area of interest that is novel to Egypt and the region while contributing to global scholarship and actively presenting the voice of developing countries in global conversations.

Digital India Foundation

Digital India Foundation is a policy think-tank promoting Digital Inclusion, Cyber Security, Mobile Manufacturing, Domestic Consumption, Software Products and Smart Cities. Since its inception in 2015, it has worked with pioneers in industry, academia and government organizations on issues ranging from promoting a safer and inclusive product and policy environment for Indian ecosystem.

Specific work undertaken by DIF.

As consultant to MyGov (Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology), we organised Citizens Voice Challenge with an aim to provide innovative ideas and solutions for converting voice notes into actionable text and insights.  The trigger for organising this challenge and ultimate implementation was from the fact that MyGov has an operational voice helpline - MyGov1800, IVR operated toll-free number, which allows users to call and leave feedback and suggestions for the upcoming Mann Ki Baat. This toll-free number receives ~15,000 calls a month and these notes are critical in determining the content of future interactions by the prime minister, as well as key policy initiatives for the government.

University of Cape Coast

The University of Cape Coast was established in October, 1962 as a University College and placed in a special relationship with the University of Ghana, Legon.
The University was established out of a dire need for highly qualified and skilled manpower in education. Its original mandate was therefore to train graduate professional teachers for Ghana’s second cycle institutions and the Ministry of Education in order to meet the manpower needs of the country’s accelerated education programme at the time.
