Advancing Data Justice Research and Practice in Uganda

Funders: Alan Turing Institute and International Centre of Expertise in Montreal on Artificial Intelligence

Target: Policymakers, Developers, and Impacted Communities 

Project Overview

Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET) in partnership with Alan Turing Institute conducted a research study to enhance the capacity of policymakers, developers, and the citizens to move beyond just governance of data and understand the clear relationship between compliance matter of privacy and ethical design to enable them to prioritize equity and justice in terms of access to, and visibility and representation in data used in the development of AI/ML systems in Uganda and globally. Moving beyond data governance implies that policymakers, developers, and the impacted communities are knowledgeable about the current state of Data Justice research and practice and they can identify the existing gaps as well as use the available tools and guidelines developed to improve their current AI/ML systems practice and use to understand the needs of policymakers, individuals/communities marginalized by AI/ML systems, and developer communities.
