The Google AI Impact Challenge: A presentation by Oscar Wahltinez

Library East, Room 100, Wednesday, February 26, 4pm-5pm.

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. issued an open call to organizations around the world to submit their ideas for how they could use AI to help address societal challenges. 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.  In this lecture I will talk about this program and speak about my personal experience working on it.

Oscar Wahltinez is a Developer Programs Engineer at Google working on Android, cameras and machine learning.
