The LatinX in AI (LXAI) bridges communities, academics, industry, and politicians working to further AI innovation and resources for LatinX individuals globally. We host research workshops at AI academic conferences, drive and support research, development, and infrastructure programs to boost innovation and capabilities of Latin Americans working in Artificial Intelligence.
Launched in January 2018, leaders from organizations in Artificial Intelligence, Education, Research, Finance, Community and Social Impact Non-Profits banded together to create a group that would be focused on “Creating Opportunity for LatinX in AI.”
Artificial Intelligence has the potential to displace workers of marginalized populations including those of Latinx origin. AI is already perpetuating social bias and prejudice because it lacks representation of LatinX professionals in the AI industry.
