LatinX in AI Coalition

Creating Harmony Between AI and the Latinx Community

  • Increase representation of Latinx in Artificial Intelligence
  • Improve access to education and resources in AI engineering to latinx community
  • Improve awareness of the long and short term effects of artificial intelligence technology on the latinx community
  • Increase communication between AI companies, engineers, researchers and the latinx community
  • Ensure transparency and accuracy of latinx culture and voice in data representations

Why Now?

An oncoming wave of AI Technology is permeating through the latinx community now and in the coming years.

Autonomous Trucks

Out of a population of 3.5 million truck drivers in the U.S. – 3.1 million of whom are commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders – some 38.75% are minorities according to data compiled by the American Trucking Associations (ATA).

Hispanic men make up the 2nd largest demographic of the truck driver population at 14.6%, based on 2014 data.

Motor carriers are embracing and increasing the diverse ethnicity of the current workforce to fill their gaps in employment.

It's imperative to ensure our community has a voice in the oncoming Autonomous Trucking revolution.

This is just one example of many in which the Latinx community will be affected by Artificial Intelligence research, engineering, and automation. To learn more, check out our medium publication.

LatinX in AI Directory

We are creating a public directory of LatinX individuals active in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science. This directory will be maintained by the LatinX in AI (LXAI) organization.


If you are organizing an event related to artificial intelligence, this list serves as a resource for potential speakers.



If you identify as latinx and are working in artificial intelligence or know someone who is latinx and is working in artificial intelligence, please fill in the information form to add someone to the directory (or update existing information). This list is opt-in; if anyone is added (or any change is made) via the form, the person whose information is added will be contacted by email and must respond before they are added publicly. Please note that there may be some delay before the directory is updated.
