Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to radically transform the way the international development community solves humanitarian, development, and conservation challenges. Applying AI in the work NetHope members do - from emergency response and refugee education to health diagnostics and poverty eradication - represents an incredible opportunity to enhance existing programs and create solutions that are more effective than ever before.

In this session, we'll focus on addressing a few key questions such as:

  • What is AI? What is Machine Learning?
  • What problems can AI / ML solve today?
  • What are the benefits of using AI in international development? What are the barriers and issues?
  • What are some of the examples of applied AI across humanitarian and development context?
  • How can humanitarian sector influence the development and use of AI?

This session is designed to be an introduction to AI and AI for Good, and a primer for NetHope Global Summit where we have planned three in-person sessions focused on AI for Good. In this session, we’ll share more about what we have planned for the Summit and introduce AI for Good speakers.
