AI Seminar Series 2021: Denise Campbell-Scherer

The AI Seminar is a weekly meeting at the University of Alberta where researchers interested in artificial intelligence (AI) can share their research. Presenters include both local speakers from the University of Alberta and visitors from other institutions. Topics can be related in any way to artificial intelligence, from foundational theoretical work to innovative applications of AI techniques to new fields and problems.

On February 12, UAlberta Department of Family Medicine Professor Denise Campbell-Scherer presented “Using Anthrocomplexity and Sensemaking to Understand and Mitigate the impacts of COVID-19: Opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration”.

COVID-19 outbreaks in racialized communities have exacerbated disparities in poverty and illness. In this talk, Dr. Campbell-Scherer talks about The Illuminate Project, which generated sensemaking data to understand the evolving impacts of COVID-19 -- exposing the entangled issues with systemic roots that result in poor health in vulnerable members of ethnocultural communities, and exploring the impact of COVID-19 on increasing basic needs, as well as the time and effort needed to mitigate them.
