Global Index & Responsible AI

As a member  of the Data for Development Network (D4D.net) Global Research Hub   we are excited to announce our collaboration with the Global Index on Responsible Artificial Intelligence, a groundbreaking initiative led by Research ICT Africa.  Together, we aim to foster the development of an all-encompassing set of benchmarks designed to assess countries’ dedication to responsible AI on a global scale. 


LDRI will be responsible for leading research for a subset of  20 countries in the Sub-Saharan Region. These countries include:  Benin, Botswana, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Liberia, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Togo, Tunisia, Zambia and Uganda. 


About the Global Index on Responsible AI:

The GIRAI is a groundbreaking tool designed to provide a reliable and comparative assessment of responsible AI practices in countries worldwide. By integrating human rights obligations into AI ethics principles, the Global Index establishes concrete benchmarks for measuring responsible AI based on existing human rights treaties and standards. The Global Index aims to foster accountability, refine best practices, develop precise policy interventions, and encourage regional and international cooperation in promoting responsible AI.


To do so, the GIRAI has built a Global Research Network composed of Regional Hubs, which are civil society organizations, research institutions, think tanks and universities very well known and recognized in their regions for their work towards digital technologies and AI and human rights. These organizations are in charge of coordinating the work of more than 130 country level researchers.
