Deploying beneficial AI around the globe will require innovative governance.

A Solution Network is a global team of cross-sectoral, interdisciplinary experts who design and develop responsible and beneficial AI solutions. In partnership with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), we will select a Solution Network and support responsible AI in low-middle income countries.

The call for expressions of interest (EOIs) is now closed. Successful applicants have been invited to submit full proposals, which are due January 17, 2021. The successful Network will be announced March 31, 2021.
