Google wants AI for social good

Google has called on organisations to submit ideas for how they could use artificial intelligence to help address societal challenges, CNET reported.

Called the Google AI for Social Good Impact Challenge, selected organisations will receive support from Google’s AI experts, grant funding from a $25-million pool, and credit and consulting from Google Cloud.

“We’re looking for projects across a range of social impact domains and levels of technical expertise, from organisations that are experienced in AI to those with an idea for how they could be putting their data to better use,” Google said.

Google said that reviewers will look at the following criteria for this initiative:

  • Impact — How will the proposed project address a societal challenge, and to what extent?
  • Feasibility — Does the team have a well-­developed, realistic plan to execute on the proposal?
  • Use of AI — Does the proposal apply AI technology to tackle the issue it seeks to address?
  • Scalability — How can this project scale beyond the initial proposal?
  • Responsibility — Does the proposed project use of artificial intelligence align with Google’s AI Principles?

Further information about the initiative may be obtained, and applications may be submitted, on the Google AI for Social Good website.
