The University of Namibia’s Pro-vice Chancellor of Research, Innovation and Development, Professor Anicia Peters, has clinched a Google AI Award for Inclusion Research, a global initiative that supports academic research in computing and technology which addresses the needs of underrepresented populations. The Criteria for the Award, which was accompanied by an unrestricted gift to UNAM of USD35,000, included a credible track record of the researcher’s performance in the selected topic, innovativeness, and the potential to change the academic landscape and the impact on the communities. Future Media News contacted Professor Peters who said she can’t wait to continue her research, titled “Human Centered Technology Design for Social Justice in Africa”.
