"AI & Big Data: The Future of Global Development" Speaker Panel

Artificial intelligence and advanced analytics are changing the way we live, the way businesses operate, and how the most complex problems in the world are tackled.

Disease prevention, global refugee crisis mitigation, flood forecasting, marine protection, detecting diseased crops and fighting deforestation, are just a fraction of the applications of artificial intelligence in the developing world. Truly addressing these challenges will not only require the use of state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms and excellent data quality, but strong partnerships between the private sector, public sector, and government institutions.

Hosted by GE Week and sponsored by the Boston Consulting Group, the AI & Big Data: Future of Global Development panel will bring together thought leaders from business, tech, academia, and political science to discuss how machine learning, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence can be used to address global development challenges. The discussion will also highlight private sector, public sector, and government institutions can work together to implement the most innovative and sustainable solutions.

Join us on March 11th from 7-9pm at the Myhal Centre.
