The session will feature a presentation on equitable AI by USAID Gender & AI Fellow Genevieve Smith, and multiple flash presentations from organizations working to advance equitable AI that will describe challenges and solutions to developing and deploying equitable AI in international development applications. Presenters will include the PIT Policy Lab from USAID’s Equitable AI Challenge.
