CSEA participates in the GRAIN Network exchange and sharing session

CSEA was represented by Dr. Adedeji Adeniran, Director of Research, at a working session convened by Gender and Responsible Artificial Intelligence Network (GRAIN), on theme “a collaborative approach to responsible AI and gender” from 16 to 18 April 2024, in Kampala, Uganda.

The event provided a platform for members of the Grain Consortium (IPAR, Sunbird and CSEA), as well as the beneficiaries of the GRAIN project, to discuss strategies to help tackle gender data disparities in AI across sub-Saharan Africa.

It also aimed to encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing between network members, identify challenges and opportunities to achieving the network’s objectives, and develop strategies and action plans to address key issues related to GRAIN’s mission.

The meeting featured a range of knowledge and exchange sessions such as presentations of beneficiaries’ projects, group work and brainstorming sessions about the network’s next steps.
