Building the Next Gen of Black AI Leaders

Mar 7, 2024

11:00am – 11:30am CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

Alliance4ai was founded on the premise that skills training alone will not diversify & expand our AI developer pool for added value & decreased harm to Black communities worldwide. In this session, we’ll discuss the additional elements required to engage diverse learners to become emerging AI leaders, build tech & leadership skills, & promote a mission based AI for good worldview. We’ll also talk about the challenges African communities face in AI development & propose research & experience based solutions that can be scaled easily with community based leadership strategies.
