This session took place at the Leaders Lounge of the 2023 AI for Good Global Summit in Geneva, Switzerland.
Achieving healthy and thriving communities is one of the global challenges facing our modern society. We are experiencing a rise in health conditions affecting people around the world with some of these conditions exacerbated by climate change, and its effect on major natural events, such as floods and bushfires. In addition, systemic social issues of inequality and disadvantage, pose a threat to the development of countries and communities globally. Creative and transformative responses are needed to address these issues and secure healthy, safe and inclusive communities locally, nationally and internationally. The Monash Data Futures Institute fosters transnational, interdisciplinary collaborations in the applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data science for good, bringing together leading cross-disciplinary expertise, international partnerships and one of the largest cohorts of AI and data science researchers in the Asia-Pacific. In this talk, Prof Batstone will discuss flagship research in AI for Good led by the Monash Data Futures Institute, tackling global health and enabling the creation of thriving communities in Australia.
