AI for Social Good | Future Says Series

Dr. Richard Benjamins, Chief Data & AI Strategist, Telefonica


In this episode we are joined by Dr. Richard Benjamins as we review some of the opportunities and issues with using AI for social good. 

There is a myriad of ways that AI can be used for social good: improving quality of education, alleviating poverty, and aiding in the fight against climate change. In the push to use AI for social good we need to increase collaboration between key industries and work together to understand the potential negative consequences of using AI in the drive to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. 

During this episode, we discuss:

  • Why we need to leverage the power of data and AI not only for business, but also for the good of society
  • How mobile data can be used for the greater good
  • Why we need to encourage more collaboration between governments, industries, and research institutions to scale AI for social good
