Subject: AI regulation: Why Africa must have a voice in global talks

This article on “AI regulation: Why Africa must have a voice in global talks” 
might be of interest.

“ Indeed, the idea of a new international watchdog overseeing this new 
technology could be very useful.

But given Africa’s future role in global markets, there is a strong case for 
this new body to be based in Cairo, Lagos, Nairobi or Cape Town, rather than in 
London. Indeed, if it is not, there is a real risk that the digital 
inequalities between Africa and the rest of the world will be exacerbated by 
AI, not reduced or managed.

The time is now to be thinking these issues through – and planning ahead – 
before AI really scales up on the continent, because by then, it will be too 
late to pull back.”
