GLOBAL PLATFORM TO ADVANCE PROGRESS ON SDGs USING BENEFICIAL AI



Get Involved


The AI for Good Global Summit is the leading United Nations (UN) platform for inclusive global dialogue on AI and is organized by the XPRIZE Foundation in partnership with the UN ITU and sister UN agencies.

By connecting international leaders, thinkers and programmers, the annual Summit seeks to identify practical applications of AI that will drastically improve and impact society on a global level through the accomplishment of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The AI for Global Good Summit has shifted to become all virtual, with weekly programming throughout 2020. 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 diverse opportunity to connect problem owners with AI problem solvers and work together on actionable projects that shape the future of AI for Good.

Specifically, this year’s Summit aims to create large-scale breakthroughs in the domains of Gender, Food and Pandemics through collaborative workshops known as Breakthrough Tracks.

To join the virtual conversation around AI for Good, hear from keynote speakers, and participate in collaborative Breakthrough workshops, sign up for the AI for Good Global Summit - Breakthrough Days event happening this September 21-29, 2020.


A Partnership between Xprize and ITU

ITU is the United Nations’ specialized agency for information and communication technologies. XPRIZE and ITU have partnered together to create and co-organize the annual AI for Good Global Summit.

Breakthrough
Tracks

The goal of Breakthrough Tracks is to generate and fuel meaningful projects in each of this year’s three AI for Good Global Summit domains - Gender, Food, and Pandemics - that will advance progress on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Interested individuals and teams from around the world have submitted project ideas to the Gender, Food and Pandemics Breakthrough Tracks. The top three finalists in each domain will be selected by the Brain Trust and will have the opportunity to present their projects at the virtual AI for Good Global Summit Breakthrough Days.



Gender
  • Biased data leads to biased insights, biased algorithms, biased solutions and policies, and ultimately a biased world.
  • Participate in efforts to prevent a cycle of algorithmic bias and enable an equitable future for humanity.

Food
  • Food systems are the largest contributor to environmental degradation, yet 2.5 billion people rely on agriculture for their livelihoods.
  • Submit your ideas for a smart food system that eradicates hunger, improves nutrition and promotes sustainable agriculture.

Pandemics
  • Facing the COVID-19 crisis and preparing for future pandemics is proving to be one of the world’s most critical challenges.
  • Help identify and develop data-based solutions to bring rapid relief today and lasting solutions to pandemics in the future.

Brain Trust
The AI and Data for Good Alliance Brain Trust is composed of forward-looking individuals, innovators and thinkers who utilize their expertise in data and AI systems to help drive global initiatives around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Brain Trust members help to identify potential breakthroughs in their respective domains, curate high-impact projects and facilitate connections between innovators and other global leaders.
