Google and many other companies have already been using AI over the past few years to come up with social solutions that are intended to improve our everyday lives.
AI (artificial intelligence) computer programming tools that help identify patterns in complex data make many everyday products more useful. AI already powers much of the technology we see around us and has been used to address a lot of our biggest unsolved challenges.
Core Google AI research and engineering have been applied to projects with a positive impact on society, including flood forecasting, protecting whales and our oceans, as well as predicting patterns in global famine.
Google has also launched the Google AI Impact Challenge, which is a global call for nonprofits, academics and social enterprises around the world to submit proposals on how they could use AI to address some of these social, humanitarian and environmental issues.
Here are just a few examples of how Google and others have used AI over the past few years for greater change: Wildlife conservation, employment, flood prevention, and infant health, with programs being introduced in the U.S, South Africa, and Canada, to name a few.
