The workshop will introduce the basics of AI and how to identify and address meaningful problems, aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), using AI-based technologies. The workshop will conclude with real-world insights and strategies from young women who have used technology (mobile and AI) to address SDGs in their communities.

Who can attend?

This workshop is open to students, educators and professionals interested in learning more about AI. We will have a blend of age ranges in the room as we learn together.

What will I learn?

You will learn about fundamental AI concepts, brainstorm meaningful problems in your community and practice making an AI model (that recognizes text or images or sentiment in text). You will hear inspiring stories from community members about how they used AI to solve problems and finally, you will have a unique opportunity to review new AI innovations from around the world that address community problems.
