Kamusi Labs seeks to nurture the talent of our members regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or physical challenge - we focus on your skills and enthusiasm. Young women and men have worked on coding and language projects with us from Burundi, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Iran, Italy, Kenya, Korea, Lebanon, Nigeria, Pakistan, Portugal, Rwanda, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Uganda, the UK, and the US. Openness to working with a diverse group, and devotion for solving problems to open tomorrow's digital opportunities for speakers of marginalized languages, are requirements for joining us.
We have a long set of coding and linguistic data tasks that will result in a range of tools to use language in ways that have never before been possible. Many of our technical tasks can be implemented immediately by talented coders. We also welcome people interested in projects for particular languages, ranging from field lexicography to data mining to building models for natural language processing. We welcome volunteer hackers, or students seeking exciting research projects, to contact us to discuss how you can join in.
