Artificial intelligence has significant potential to intervene in some of humanity’s most pressing and challenging problems. As AI systems become more powerful and flexible they have been applied to helping refugees, healthcare, environmental monitoring, assisting those with disabilities, and a range of other humanitarians and societal. As AI is deployed in these arenas, it is important to apply our understanding of ethics in considering how these systems are designed and used. “AI for social good” involves investigations of how to best assist, empower, and improve societies and individuals through AI. The symposium will bring together researchers who are working at the forefront of pushing AI into domains where it can do “social good” with scholars who are reflecting on its broader social and ethical impacts.
