The 2020 edition of the United Nations AI for Good Global Summit is in full swing and this year takes the form of a continuous virtual event. It features weekly programming across multiple formats, platforms and time-zones, including keynotes, expert webinars, project pitches, Q&As, performances, demos, interviews, networking and more.

The goal of the summit is to identify practical applications of AI and scale those solutions for global impact. There are many researchers focussing on work towards meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and AI could be a powerful tool in this quest.
