The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) plays a key role in driving the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) as a tool to address social challenges. Working together with regional experts, the IDB designed the fAIr LAC initiative to promote responsible adoption of AI, thereby improving the delivery of government services such as Public Employment Services (PES) and creating development opportunities in the region. The fAIr LAC initiative aims to close gaps and reduce the growing social inequality in LAC.
As one of the first steps of this initiative, the IDB recently conducted a preliminary analysis of the progress made by countries in LAC regarding the use of AI in social services. The report Artificial Intelligence for Social Good in Latin America and the Caribbean: The Regional Landscape and 12 Country Snapshots introduced the best practices in the field of AI in the region. JANZZ.technology is delighted to share that its project ParaEmpleo – a job matching solution realized in collaboration with Paraguay’s Ministry of Labor, Employment and Social Security – is one of them. JANZZ.technology is keen to continue contributing to projects that use AI for social good and adopt ethical and responsible principles, thus generating better social services in more regions.
