Day 1 Pre KIGF Online Discussion – Data Track

Dear Listers,

Artificial Intelligence can be used to provide better access to public
services for the most vulnerable.

User-centered design should address the experiences and views of people,
especially vulnerable populations, who may be negatively impacted by new
technologies.

The idea of including users in the design and testing of new products and
services is not new. What is perhaps unusual is the notion that groups who
may be negatively impacted by a technology should be involved in their
design and methods of promotion and use. Some firms however, have begun to
embrace this practice as a moral and business imperative.

There are inventive approaches and methods in a range of industries that
the developers and users of AI solutions could build on, including:

· Identifying legitimate representative or proxy organizations to
engage with.

· Using technology to enable affected rights-holders to share
grievances and experiences.

· Engaging directly with individuals who have suffered abuses in
the past.

· Diversifying the workforce to involve viewpoints informed by a
wide variety of life experiences and challenges in company discussions.

Kind Regards,

Winfred Anyona
