The Datasphere Initiative is pleased to welcome the D4D Global Research Hub, a global research alliance addressing critical development challenges across the Global South, as an in-kind partner. The partnership will foster collaboration between the two organizations as they explore how responsible use of data can be used for the public good. 

Data is spurring new innovations and transformative social change, leading to new opportunities and challenges for us to consider. We are pleased to partner with D4D.net which brings an important network of actors in the Global South working on strengthening collaboration around open data, responsible AI, and big data, to name a few examples” said Carolina Rossini, Director of Partnerships and Research. 

Both organizations work to strengthen collaboration across broad networks of stakeholders by connecting organizations and developing policies and research on how to responsibly unlock the value of data for all. 

Datasphere Initiative and D4D.net have recently announced the launch of a webinar series (to kick off in 2023) on data and AI to gather approaches and experiences across all regions and support the development of the Global Index on AI. 

“As the development and use of AI systems and data expand around the world, there is a critical need to understand both progress to date and the challenges facing the responsible governance of these technologies globally. We are pleased to partner with the Datasphere Initiative in the pursuit of our common goals to explore how we can responsibly leverage data for society” said Stephen Walker, Director, D4D Global Research Hub.
