About episode 13: Generative AI, empowering women and youth in Kenya
In this 13th episode, we speak about the role of technology and artificial intelligence in bridging the digital divide from a grass roots perspective.
Listen to the inspiring story of Magdaline Chepkemoi – founder and CEO of EldoHub, a technology hub that applies technology to solve local challenges and empowers women and young people in tech in Kenya. With tangible impact.
Together we look at how new technologies like generative AI revolutionise the ICT sector. How does Magdalene’s work in Kenya link to international Geneva? What are the challenges in terms of regulations related to intellectual property? How can the international community support the development of such technologies while addressing its challenges?
We also identify ways in which women and especially young girls could be encouraged to follow an ICT career and support bridging the gender divide in tech. For Magdaline, one thing is clear: it’s time to focus on the tech expertise of women instead of the gender perspective.
The interview is conducted by Lars Tummers, Ambassador and Deputy Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Geneva.
