“Mission-driven artificial intelligence” is the responsible application of artificial intelligence (AI) to solve societal and ecological challenges. Sometimes dubbed “AI for good,” mission-driven AI is the use of machine-learning techniques to streamline operations and enhance programs at nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and social enterprises.
Check out the Stanford Social Innovation Review article, Artificial Intelligence as a Force for Good, by my co-author, Abhishek Gupta, and me on artificial intelligence aimed at solving societal and ecological challenges. We are calling this “mission-driven artificial intelligence” and are in the midst of exploring this topic for a variety of publications. This SSIR piece is the first of what we hope will be several more pieces.
