At Google, we believe that artificial intelligence can provide new ways of approaching problems and meaningfully improve people’s lives. That’s why we’re excited to support organizations that are using the power of AI to address social and environmental challenges. Our 20 selected organizations received coaching from Google’s AI experts, Google.org grant funding from a $25 million pool, and credits and consulting from Google Cloud. They also joined a customized 9-month accelerator program, including guidance from our nonprofit partner, DataKind, to jumpstart their work.
We looked for projects across a range of social impact domains and levels of technical expertise, from organizations that are experienced in AI to those with an idea for how they could put their data to better use. From that search, we selected 20 organizations that encompass the breadth of impact AI has to offer.
