How AI can help us build an intelligent and sustainable future?
3. 导语/背景情况概述 Background:
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in public health, such as contact tracing, facial recognition, virus detection and vaccine development. As we start to reap the benefits of AI technologies to combat the pandemic, we also need to recognize the potential risks posed by such technologies, such as the widening digital divide, data privacy concerns, and the development of autonomous weapons. Therefore, more efforts and investments are needed to steer technology towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and make more AI beneficial for all. This Hack aims to bring teams of passionate young people from across the world together to embark on a learning journey to explore how we can harness AI technologies to tackle real-world problems.
