AI should help the world’s poorest, UN summit hears

A summit in Geneva hopes to refocus the applications of artificial intelligence towards meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

The AI for Good Global summit is taking place between 7 and 9 June with support from 20 UN agencies, and is jointly organised by the UN International Telecommunications Union and the XPRIZE Foundation.

The summit aims to come up with ways that AI can help eliminate global poverty and hunger, and protect the environment. Attendees include Margaret Chan, the outgoing director-general of the World Health Organization, Peter Norvig, the director of research at Google, and Salil Shetty, secretary-general of the human-rights advocacy group Amnesty International​.
