AI and its Impact on the Global South: A Series on Technology

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Maria Ressa and Urvashi Aneja discussed the impact of current AI developments on the Global South in a 25-minute, 17-second video. The video, published on February 12, 2024, explores how much of the labor that powers the AI boom is based in the Global South, leading to questions about who benefits from the technology and what the costs are.

Ressa and Aneja highlighted the impact AI is already having on Global South communities, including labor conditions, democracy, and the environment. They emphasized that countries must move beyond simply “catching up with the North” when considering their role in AI technology. The video aims to stimulate discussion about the implications of AI in the Global South and encourage viewers to share it on social media to continue exploring this important topic.
