Ranjit Singh on Leveraging Big Data and AI-based Interventions for the Majority World

Ranjit Singh, researcher at the AI on the Ground Initiative, Data & Society Research Institute, invites us to reframe our thinking about how technology impacts the globe’s largest populations in the Global South.

Observing how tech actually affects communities on the ground and the nature of their relationship with technology can help tailor and improve the experience of data-driven solutions, in practical terms.
