  • This workshop aims to foster discussions around the development of a collaborative portal and platform to address global decision-augmentation challenges, such as climate change, pandemic resilience, and food safety. As part of the ITU’s AI and Data Common’s Project Resilience, we seek to establish standards, processes, and software that enable worldwide teams to define project scopes, collaborate on solutions, and integrate local AI efforts to tackle global issues. The platform will serve as a model clearinghouse for AI-based decision augmentation systems and promote the inclusion of local AI contributions into a larger, collaborative system. A crucial aspect of the platform will be the creation and maintenance of standards and APIs to support contributions to the overall project. The workshop will provide a platform for idea exchange, requirement discussions, and exploration of ways to realize this vision.
