Good news: the 2020 Sunbird AI annual report is out.
Our annual report contains the work we did as an organization last year. Considering that 2020 was dominated by a global pandemic with lockdowns, curfews and stay-at-home orders among other things, we started out as a completely remote team. In the absence of the ability to move about physically to coordinate our initially planned projects, we turned to the work we could do at that moment: aiding in the analysis of COVID-related data, on social media and on radio.
We also began research and implementation of AI language technology for five Ugandan languages, starting with a dataset of translations from English to these languages.
