ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE - The Road Ahead in Low and Middle-Income Countries

My co-author and Cambrian collaborator Mark Nitzberg and I are glad to have contributed in humble ways to this very timely report by Sir Tim Berners-Lee's WebFoundation.org.  AI has the potential to be the great equalizer but also the risk of increasing the digital and economic divides between the world's rich and poor.  Harnessing opportunity and mitigating risk will require socio-technical policies and governance institutions for which all countries are ill-equipped, but those without representative multi-stakeholder governance experience, large data pools and / or large markets will have a particularly hard time.
