Parvathy Krishnan Participated in the AI for Social Good Seminar!

Last week, ABW CTO Parvathy Krishnan had the opportunity to participate in the AI for Social Good Dagstuhl Seminar!

The AI for the social good seminar at the Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Center for Informatics had 27 people from 7 countries on 3 continents convene for a week to live together and work on forming collaborations.

The seminar took place between February 18th and February 23rd, 2024. The first two days focused on cracking each other’s code. Discussions focused on the NGOs’ most pressing challenges, and on what techniques of artificial intelligence are currently available to help solve them. On days three and four, the AI experts and the not-for-profit organizations held a hackathon to build concrete prototypes for AI applications for social good. The last day was used to plan for the future of the created collaborations.

AI and ML have rapidly advanced, impacting billions. To ensure social good, the seminar proposed uniting NGOs with AI experts to address humanitarian issues. Goals included forging partnerships, tackling problems in a hackathon, and showcasing feasible solutions. Objectives range from aiding NGOs directly to sparking new ML research for societal needs. The seminar aimed to foster lasting collaborations and promote these efforts in both sectors. The intimate setting of Dagstuhl encouraged effective communication and exchange. Expected outcomes included implementing AI solutions for NGOs, inspiring new research, and fostering ongoing partnerships.
