AI for Good Global Summit is the leading United Nations platform for global and inclusive dialogue on AI. Hosted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in partnership with UN Sister agencies, XPRIZE Foundation and ACM, the goal of the summit is to identify practical applications of AI and ensure trusted, safe and inclusive development of AI technologies and equitable access to their benefits.

Taking place May 28-31 in Geneva, Switzerland, the summit brings together leading minds in AI, industry leaders, academia and government officials to act as speakers, mentors and participants in expert debates on AI technology, policy and strategy. Participants can view dynamic demos and join workshops and boot-camps. As a result of the action-oriented AI Breakthrough Tracks, last year’s summit saw more than 35 projects generated, including satellite, smart cities and health focused initiatives.
