AI in Digital Equity: Time for a Community Conversation (webinar recording)

In this January 2024 webinar, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) brought their community together to host an AI and digital inclusion discussion. Topics included an overview of AI, generative AI, use cases for generative AI, risks and considerations, and resources to continue to educate yourself.

From the session description:

"Within the NDIA community, we have early adopters, technologists who dove in headfirst, those who have only touched the tip of the AI iceberg, people who have read hundreds of ethics concerns and are fearful, and a lot of us who are in between or might not even know where to start.

Wherever you’re in your AI journey, it’s time for a digital inclusion community discussion. What we know for sure is that AI will cause another digital divide, or further exacerbate the one we already have.

NDIA will help guide the community in some learning, start the conversation, and hear your thoughts about AI and digital inclusion."
