The work of the AI for Good Global Summit continues online, all year round. The upcoming ‘Breakthrough Days’, 21-30 September 2020, represent the culmination of this year’s actions to generate AI for Good projects capable of advancing gender equality and food security and contending with pandemics such as Covid-19.

The year 2020 has seen individuals and teams proposing AI for Good projects in these three ‘Breakthrough Tracks’, mentored by experts in AI and the targeted application domains. Three finalists in each domain are set to present their project proposals in a series of interactive workshops over the upcoming Breakthrough Days.

Ten years remain to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The action-oriented AI for Good series is the leading United Nations platform for AI. The summit identifies practical applications of AI to accelerate progress towards the SDGs and builds collaboration to assist these applications in achieving global impact.
