Artificial Intelligence (AI) is often depicted through a dystopian lens. Yet, AI and big data have empowered humans and machines to collaborate like never before, driving insights, detecting patterns and facilitating breakthroughs faster and at a larger scale. AI is therefore a proponent of the future, not an enemy of it.
Through human + AI collaboration, an inﬁnite amount of untapped resources becomes instantly available. Which is why XPRIZE leverages AI as a powerful tool to accelerate groundbreaking solutions for humanity’s greatest challenges.
AI for Good is a cultural and technological commitment to shift the narrative around AI and provide proof points that AI is a tool of empowerment and a force for good.
AI to solve
"The time to talk about AI for Good is now - not a year from now or ﬁve years from now, but now. The ideas and discussions around AI for Good need to move from theoretical to concrete and practical. For instance, AI can help optimize malaria prevention and improve the treatment of diabetes, but it’s up to humans to tap into that technology.
That is precisely what the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE is focused on - providing concrete proof points of AI for Good in action. Through this work we hope to increase AI literacy and shorten the gap between technologists and problem solvers.” — Devin Krotman, Director, Prize Operations
The AI for Good Global Summit is the leading United Nations (UN) platform for inclusive global dialogue on AI and is organized by the XPRIZE Foundation in partnership with the UN ITU and sister UN agencies.
By connecting international leaders, thinkers and programmers, the annual Summit seeks to identify practical applications of AI that will drastically improve and impact society on a global level through the accomplishment of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Speciﬁcally, this year’s Summit aims to create large-scale breakthroughs in the domains of Gender, Food and Pandemics through collaborative workshops known as Breakthrough Tracks.
To join the virtual conversation around AI for Good, hear from keynote speakers, and participate in collaborative Breakthrough workshops, sign up for the AI for Good Global Summit - Breakthrough Days event happening this September 21-29, 2020.Register Now
The goal of Breakthrough Tracks is to generate and fuel meaningful projects in each of this year’s three AI for Good Global Summit domains - Gender, Food, and Pandemics - that will advance progress on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Interested individuals and teams from around the world have submitted project ideas to the Gender, Food and Pandemics Breakthrough Tracks. The top three ﬁnalists in each domain will be selected by the Brain Trust and will have the opportunity to present their projects at the virtual AI for Good Global Summit Breakthrough Days.
