Call for proposals #EmpatIA: artificial intelligence for the public good in Latin America

We are pleased to announce that today we are launching EmpatIA, an initiative coordinated by ILDA and Centro Latam Digital, with the support of IDRC and the Inter-American Development Bank. This initiative seeks to promote the development of applications and prototypes for solving challenges in public policy and services in Latin America through the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies.

The call for proposals is geared towards actors from the academic, private or civil society sectors, in partnership with government entities.

We invite organizations working on the frontlines of data, artificial intelligence and the key ICT issues in our region to apply.

The criteria selection will have a special focus on projects working on climate change, gender inequality, natural resource management, democratic institutions or government transparency and emergency management in the context of #COVID19.

This effort is part of the global AI4D initiative (Artificial Intelligence for Development).
