Event Description

Join DME for Peace on Thursday, July 30th at 10:00am ET as Branka Panic of AI for Peace and Laura Clark Murray of Omdena join the M&E Thursday Talks to lead a discussion on “Using AI to Create Lasting Peace – Building Bridges between AI Experts & Peacebuilders.” 


Big data, machine learning, natural language processing – buzz words or real tools that can be applied in peacebuilding? If you are curious about advancements in the information revolution, data analytics, satellite imagery analysis, or you want to learn how AI is being used to achieve more peaceful and just societies, join this Thursday Talk webinar!

As the world is facing new forms of violence, repression, and human rights violations, peacebuilders are exploring new tools to respond to peace and security challenges. Sometimes the gap between tools and practitioners looks too big to cross, and yet there is an urgent need to overcome this obstacle. AI for Peace is aiming to solve this challenge by connecting data scientists and AI experts with peacebuilders to create a more peaceful, just, and sustainable future. Exponential technologies are already here, and AI for Peace aims to open pathways for peacebuilders to utilize them. 

Join this discussion to learn more about cutting-edge approaches to utilizing AI for peace. Alongside Omdena, this discussion will address the urgent need to take advantage of new tools, while applying ethical standards and caution about unintended consequences. Omdena will showcase real-life examples of how to use AI to protect the most vulnerable populations in a pandemic, to identify and prevent gang violence, or to predict climate change and forced displacement. Following these examples, the discussion will be open to the audience to share possible applications of AI in your work and how those ideas can be translated into practice through AI for Peace and Omdena’s work.
