Artificial Intelligence for Good: How Entrepreneurs are Using AI for the Right Reasons

October 31, 2019 at 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

About the Program: 

Businesses are enthusiastically capitalizing on the benefits of artificial intelligence [AI] technology. From streamlining processes and economizing on operation costs to developing smarter products and producing valuable insights – everybody wants a slice of the AI pie. Some businesses are applying the latest in artificial intelligence technologies to promote socially beneficial ends in areas such as environmental, agriculture, and health.  

This event is dedicated to exploring the concept of AI-for-Good from practical and academic perspectives. On the practical front, the event features three AI-for-Good startups: EverCompliant, which deploys AI technology to detect money laundering, fraud and various cyber risks; TrialJectory, which has developed advanced AI algorithms of clinical trials to match cancer patients with suitable clinical trials; and OrCam, whose AI-based technology sees, reads, and identifies objects for blind and visually impaired individuals. An academic perspective complements these inspiring initiatives by pointing to some perils of the AI-for-Good movement as well as ways to mitigate them.
