Understanding AI: Programs, Power, and Global Perspectives

In today’s digital landscape, Artificial Intelligence (AI) emerges as a powerful force, intersecting profoundly with global power structures and socio-political dynamics. This Masterclass aims to support social change agents (NGOs, CSOs, social enterprises) to enhance their understanding of AI technologies, ethics, opportunities, applicability and governance.

This session aims to demystify AI for those involved in the INGO and CSO sectors by focusing on its fundamentals, implications, and practical uses.

We will explore the umbrella term Artificial Intelligence, and its related concepts Machine Learning and Deep Learning by going through the key ideas of machine thinking: data, input, output, rules, predictions, learning, stakeholders and values.

We’ll touch on AI’s practical applications like prompt patterns for different areas of our work and reflect on what (can) be AI for Good, which voices are part of the conversation in the current landscape and what can be strategic ways of interacting with technology.
