Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology of low-cost prediction and discovery. It exploits the new resource of the digital age to identify patterns and make predictions.

In developing countries, women bear the brunt of every load. Literally. They birth and raise their children, are responsible for the home, its cleanliness and provisions, and head out to the fields to earn their families’ daily wages.
