Please join us for a webinar introducing Lacuna Fund and the Fund's first Request for Proposals on labeled data for agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa.


Please join AI4D, Mozilla, and GIZ’s FAIR Forward initiative for a webinar with the Lacuna Fund Secretariat and partners introducing the Fund's mission and the critical need for representative, accessible labeled data to drive more equitable machine learning.

The webinar will feature:

  • An introduction to Lacuna Fund.
  • A panel of data scientists working to make labeled data more available across the African continent in languages, agriculture, and health.
  • A presentation of the Fund's first RFP on labeled data for agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Time for questions both for panelists and on the content and format of the RFP.

If you are interested in applying for funding or want to learn more about why labeled data matters, please join us. See more details about the open RFP.

The Question and Answer period for the RFP on Labeled Datasets for Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa will close on July 27!

All questions related to the RFP should be submitted to with “Agriculture RFP 2020 Question” in the subject line. Questions submitted by 27 July will be de-identified and answered publicly by 3 August on the Lacuna Fund website.

Thank you again for your partnership as we work to mobilize labeled datasets that address urgent problems.
