K4A trustees finalizing UNESCO Recommendation in OER

The UNESCO OER Recommendation was approved by UNESCO member states on 28th May, by consensus. Its final step for approval will take place at the UNESCO General Assembly in November, 2019. K4A had one trustee as representative at the meeting (and in multiple side meetings), and we are pleased with the outcome and final text. The importance for K4A is that the policy once adopted will incentivise UNESCO member states to use Artificial Intelligence tools for OER.

Over the past few months, Knowledge 4 All Foundation, a key partner in the Artificial Intelligence for Development (AI4D) initiative to advance AI in the Global South, partnered with Oxford Insights, an international public sector consultancy specialising in AI, and IDRC which prepared the second edition of the Government AI Readiness Index. This year’s index is more globally represented and expanded the scope to cover all UN countries. Having calculated scores for all 194 governments included in the report, Oxford Insights invited experts from each region to contribute commentary to help bring our findings to life with their insights and local knowledge.
