GIRLS UNPACKING AI

A future with more women and girls taking up careers in Artificial Intelligence

Application Deadline: 25 August

Why we do it!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Girls Unpacking AI is designed to expose young women to various opportunities in Artificial Intelligence and other contributing 4IR technologies, products, and ideologies.

We designed this program to allow young women to participate in the development of AI products and services; to have a front-row seat and an opportunity to explore a more diverse set of career options.

With the help of mentors, participants have the added advantage of engaging with a female AI practitioner/leader.

INTRODUCING THE RAINBOW NATION

The first cohort of the program is going to be from South Africa and UnpackAI will be sponsoring a total of 15 seats.

The program is online and will be open to girls from all around the world in the future.

Our mission is to graduate 5,000 girls by the year 2025

The core vision is to enable a future where more women and girls are taking up careers in AI

Part of driving the inclusivity agenda in AI has inspired the UnpackAI team to design a final project that will promote & protect the beauty of South Africa’s wildlife. We believe by educating the girls on how to apply AI to their countries’ everyday problems, the technology will become more practical and get their creative juices flowing.

"This is an amazing opportunity to pass some knowledge and give these young ladies the tools they can use to change the world"
