The AI for Good Global Summit is the leading action-oriented, global & inclusive United Nations platform on AI. The Summit is organized every year in Geneva, Switzerland, by the ITU with XPRIZE Foundation in partnership with over 35 sister United Nations agencies, Switzerland and ACM. The goal is to identify practical applications of AI and scale those solutions for global impact.

In light of COVID-19, the 2020 edition of the AI for Good Global Summit will be presented digitally through the end of the year. In April, AI For Good Global Summit leaders launched a free webinar series, drawing insights from leading experts for the AI for Good community on the latest developments and promising use cases of AI to help solve our global challenges.

On May 5, I will serve as a panelist at the next “AI for Good Global Summit” webinar series titled “The Future of Us: AI + Gender.” This session will feature discussions of current gender issues and predictions of how Artificial Intelligence will empower underrepresented communities through inclusive algorithms in the future.
