Global South Language AI [email protected] 2022

Poster presentation at NeurIPS 2022 at this meetup social affinity group.


The NeurIPS Global South Language AI Meetup's main objective is to offer an annual multidisciplinary academic conference with the highest ethical standards for a diverse and inclusive community in order to promote the exchange of research achievements in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The global south, which has a long history of colonization, has taken charge of its language AI with renewed zeal in an effort to create a new world order that will build on a past of colonization and create language richness within AI. This cannot be satisfied by translation models built with transfer learning or the latest Zero-Shot Machine Translation 7 model which is adding more languages without the AI getting a single line of translated data. We need the global south to come together to build our language models the way that works efficiently and with the story of our history. This workshop is the beginning of that journey.
