About the LAB
The AI for Good Lab is our area where we explore how to strengthen Mexico and the Latin American region in the face of the international AI and Tech Revolution, boosting the ecosystem, deepening ethical conversations and contributing more ethical, fair and inclusive AI policy.
We work with international organizations and all levels of government, from federal to state and municipal, to co-design and implement resiliency strategies that place people at the center of the conversation.
