The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Seminar is a weekly meeting at the University of Alberta where researchers interested in AI can share their research. Presenters include both local speakers from the University of Alberta and visitors from other institutions. Topics related in any way to artificial intelligence, from foundational theoretical work to innovative applications of AI techniques to new fields and problems, are explored.
In his talk, Kevin outlines two different projects which leveraged AI to make a social impact. By contrasting the technical innovations, lessons learned and lingering disappointments of both projects, Kevin concludes with overall thoughts about strategies researchers might employ in pursuit of successful AI for Social Impact projects and how these can be taught to future researchers.
