Brazil's Artificial Intelligence Center (C4AI) officially launched earlier this month, thanks to investments from IBM and Brazil’s São Paulo Research Foundation and University of Sao Paulo.

The center will work to address challenges related to health, the environment, the food production chain, the future of work, and the development of Natural Language Processing technologies in Portuguese (the language spoken by nearly all Brazilians).

C4AI also will work on human well-being improvement projects and diversity and inclusion initiatives. The center's opening comes nearly a year after the Brazilian government announced plans to create a national AI strategy.
