AI can help, but it’s not a silver bullet: tackling these questions requires a concerted, collaborative effort across all sectors of society. At Google, we believe that we can meaningfully contribute, drawing on the scale of our products and services, investment in AI research, and our commitment to using and developing AI responsibly. We’re doing that through AI for Social Good, a program that focuses Google’s AI expertise on solving humanitarian and environmental challenges.
Our work through the program centers around supporting core research and engineering efforts and empowering the social sector with tools, resources and funding, while engaging with partners across all sectors to have the biggest impact. Further, we are tackling problems within public health, nature & society, climate & energy, accessibility and crisis response.
We also strongly believe the ability to find these solutions relies on the expertise of people around the world. That’s why we’ve opened up research centers in Japan, India, Israel, and Accra and are also partnering with nonprofits, academia and public sector organizations to create systemic solutions.
