Are you wondering how we can leverage artificial intelligence to improve international development? How you can use machine learning or chatbots in your programs today? Or natural language processing in the near future?

Then you’ll love TechChange’s new course: Artificial Intelligence for International Development. This four-week online certificate course kicks off April 23rd to help you navigate and work effectively with the intelligent machines that are already becoming ubiquitous in our society.

Register now and use the code AI395 to lock in a discount.

You’ll critically evaluate different types of AI-related technologies by exploring built-in bias, ethical and moral considerations, and privacy and security with the goal of cutting through hype, evaluating real-world value, and building a basic technical understanding of AI.

The course will draw from a variety of international development case studies, particularly in healthcare, agriculture, and education, to look specifically at programmatic opportunities, both now and in the near future.

The course will include a bevy of AI thought leaders and practitioners, including:

  • Craig Jolley, Senior Data Scientist, USAID, Introduction to AI for international development and how USAID is thinking about it
  • Gabriel Krieshok, ICT4D Program Lead, Abt Associates, How should your organization be thinking about integrating AI into programs
  • Simon de Haan, Chief Engineer, Praekelt Foundation, WhatsApp and machine learning
  • Sedinam Worlanyo, TechChange, Introduction to robotics for international development
  • Joel Selanikio, CEO, Magpi, AI and the future of public health
  • Chris Albon, Chief Data Scientist, BRCK, Technical aspects of machine learning
  • Ritse Erumi, Doctoral Researcher, University of Manchester’s Centre for Development Informatics, Ford Foundation Fellow, How AI might shape the future of work in the global South
  • Ryan Budish, Assistant Director of Research, Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, Accountability of AI under the law
  • Gina Assaf, Design Lead, Souktel Digital Solutions, UX/UI and machine learning

Register now to build basic chatbots, experiment with cutting-edge AI applications, and analyze case studies of existing AI tools. No programming or mathematical background is required for the course – however, optional resources and activities will be included for those who want to dive further into the technical details.
