Programme

The AI for Good programme is designed to identify practical applications of AI to advance the sustainable development goals, and scale those solutions for global impact.

AI FOR HUMANIZING HEALTH

AI can improve the quality of affordable services, optimize the distribution of resources in underdeveloped and understaffed communities and create inclusive and responsive solutions for healthcare, diagnosis, triage or treatment decisions. However, it is not enough to deploy these solutions in the wild. We must also examine how these applications can be used responsibly and in the context of meeting our goals of having universal health coverage for all. The 2018 AI for Good Global Summit created the ITU/WHO Focus Group on AI 4 Health, which aims to benchmark AI models in health diagnostics. This year’s AI for Health Solution track will extend this work towards Universal Health Coverage in 2030 and Good Health and Well-Being in general, by identifying new ways in which AI can benefit health.

AI FOR SAFE & SMART MOBILITY

Towards zero emissions, zero deaths and zero left behind The future of smart mobility is more than just the progression and mainstreaming of semi -and fully-autonomous transport systems in the market. It is also about examining how AI technologies can help reduce emissions, increase road safety, increase mobility and enable access to affordable transportation for all.  This year's The Future of Smart Mobility Solution track will establish a concrete, inclusive and actionable discussion on how AI-enabled solutions can help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for improving in-transit traffic safety, developing energy-/environment-efficient vehicles, transportation systems and infrastructure and providing inclusive and accessible mobility opportunities for all.

AI FOR ZERO HUNGER

Our global community can leverage our collective capacity to identify AI for Good solutions that can help achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The action-oriented AI for Zero Hunger Breakthrough Session will ensure that the development and deployment of smart food systems solutions meet our targets for zero hunger while caring for the planet that serves us all, both above and below water.

AI FOR ENVIRONMENT

Our global community can leverage AI to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts, conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development, and protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss. The AI for Environment Breakthrough Session is an action-oriented program dedicated towards identifying AI for Good solutions to help protect our world.

AI FOR GENDER INCLUSIVITY

Join the AI for Gender Inclusivity Breakthrough Session's action-oriented efforts to prevent a cycle of algorithmic bias and enable an equitable future for humanity. We believe there are AI for Good solutions to the missing data problem and incentivizing the crowd to investigate the ways in which AI and machine learning can create a future in which unbiased insights that tell the story of all humanity —not just a subset of it — is the way to achieve it.
