Responsible artificial intelligence for Africa's agriculture and food systems : challenges and opportunities
Africa’s population is expected to reach about 2.6 billion by 2050. This will require an increase of up to 70% in food production. This Working Paper aims to showcase the challenges and opportunities in the responsible development, deployment, and scaling of homegrown artificial intelligence research and innovations in Africa to tackle pressing challenges in agriculture and food systems. If responsibly applied, AI in agriculture and food systems is a panacea for Africa’s development. Core principles of responsible AI use must be mainstreamed to ensure human-centered design, privacy, and intellectual property compliance, with ethics and robustness.
