De "AI for Good Global Summit" gaat digitaal
De AI for Good Global Summit, die normaal elk jaar in Geneva (Zwitserland) wordt gehouden, is in 2020 omgevormd tot een continu digitaal evenement, met wekelijkse programmas. De KNVI draagt het AI for Good initiatief een warm hart toe en deelt graag de formele berichtgeving van de AI for Good website. Schrijf je vooral in voor de webinars!
Why AI for Good?
The future will see large parts of our lives influenced by Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Machines can execute repetitive tasks with complete precision, and with recent advances in AI, machines are gaining the ability to learn, improve and make calculated decisions in ways that will enable them to perform tasks previously thought to rely on human experience, creativity, and ingenuity.
We have less than 10 years to solve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). AI holds great promise by capitalizing on the unprecedented quantities of data now being generated on sentiment behaviour, human health, commerce, communications, migration and more.
The AI for Good series is the leading action-oriented, global & inclusive United Nations platform on AI. The Summit is normally organized every year in Geneva by the ITU with XPRIZE Foundation in partnership with over 35 sister United Nations agencies, Switzerland and ACM. The goal is to identify practical applications of AI and scale those solutions for global impact.
What is different this year?
Due to recent developments concerning COVID-19, we have decided not to host a physical event in Geneva and we will make sure that the 2020 edition of the AI for Good Global Summit will go digital from now until the end of the year. The Summit will be presented as a continuous digital event, featuring weekly programming across multiple formats, platforms and time-zones, including keynotes, expert webinars, project pitches, Q&As, performances, demos, interviews, networking and more.
We see this as an opportunity to scale AI for Good conversations and reach even more people, supporting our goal of being the most diverse and inclusive platform around beneficial AI.
We have already begun, with the launch of the AI for Good Webinar series, drawing insights from leading experts for the AI for Good community on the latest developments and promising use cases of AI to help solve our global challenges. The first five episodes focused on global pandemic response and as the year progresses, we will make our way through the many confirmed AI for Good sessions and speakers from the 2020 Summit programming.
ITU and XPRIZE recognize that momentum has already begun to build in preparation for the Summit, and remain committed to providing you with meaningful content and experiences through this new digital platform. With a wider and more inclusive reach, as well as year-long visibility, our new format provides partners, speakers and supporters a much larger, more visible opportunity to connect problem owners with AI problem solvers and work together on actionable projects that shape the future of AI for Good.
We thank you for your interest in the Summit and encourage you to stay up to date on future programs and releases on our website. We look forward to meeting you online!
