  • Humanitarian needs are growing worldwide, with 235 million people requiring assistance. Remote-operated land vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles are being deployed in conflict zones to transport relief supplies over the dangerous last mile. New technologies are providing fast and secure transport of everything from food and vaccines to and diagnostic kits, in sparsely populated areas or in high-risk environments where deliveries pose a threat to aid workers. 

    While the benefits of autonomous technologies in humanitarian action are indisputable,  significant challenges still need to be mitigated to avoid putting the humanitarian aid recipients at risk. There is a need to take measures to avoid data and privacy breaches, and provide enough information to vulnerable communities about the systems being implemented. 

    In this webinar, we will explore how robotic systems can be put in place to provide an efficient humanitarian aid response that saves lives and restores dignity to individuals while ensuring that humanitarian care providers are able to safely and effectively do their work.

    This live event includes a 30-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community.
