PARADIGM INITIATIVE (PIN) strives to connect underserved young Africans to digital opportunities and ensure their rights are protected. In our regional offices in Cameroon, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Zambia, Zimbabwe and beyond, we work to connect underserved young Africans to improved livelihoods through our digital inclusion and digital rights programs. Our programs include ICT skills building, financial preparation, entrepreneurship training program (LIFE), and a digital rights advocacy program that promotes adoption of human rights respecting ICT policy and legislation.
The project on Artificial Intelligence aims to influence the consideration of human rights in Artificial Intelligence (AI) processes in Africa, at national and regional levels, as well as to stimulate conversations with relevant stakeholders. The African Commission on Human and Peoples ‘Rights recently adopted a resolution on “the need to undertake a study on human and peoples’ rights and artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and other new and emerging technologies in Africa “in order to understand the full impact of these technologies on human rights. It is on this backdrop that the project aims to raise awareness of and influence policy processes currently being developed on the continent. The project will focus on Kenya, Nigeria and Senegal and is aimed at stakeholders in civil society organizations, technical communities, business entities deploying technology and policy makers in ministries responsible for information and communication technologies amongst others.
