With a growing number of AI-related documents published every year across the globe, we wanted to understand how many of these had a social dimension and were also addressing vulnerable groups, in particular youth. According to UN statistics, in 2019, there were about 1.2 billion youth aged 15 to 24 in the world. Around 2065, the world’s youth population is projected to reach its peak, at approx. 1.4 billion persons. We are determined to make sure that all young people of today are enabled to reach their full potential as agents of change and agents of development tomorrow, by understanding the implications, countering the threats and harnessing the opportunities of AI.

You can view a brief extract of our research by following the link below. This piece is not intended to be a comprehensive analysis of all AI-related official documents; instead, we aim to put the spotlight on our team’s initial exploratory learnings and questions around the interplay between AI assessments and youth and over 3 years of hands-on experience working to empower youth with and within AI. Our goal is to identify existing gaps and understand how AI4DA could contribute to the evolution of an inclusive AI environment.

The creation of the online mapping tool came to us naturally as a one-stop source of data that is freely available to the wider public and aligned with AI4DA’s core values (empowerment, diversity & inclusion, justice and integrity).
