The rise of artificial intelligence technology and the modernization of the South Asia region have occurred in parallel over the past few decades – now, they are growing increasingly interconnected, with wide-ranging impacts and consequences. Join us for this miniseries as we explore how AI technology becomes an integral part of South Asian society and consider the potential opportunities and concerns of its proliferation.
The first panel in this miniseries will explore the social impact of AI in the region. As AI is used to address social, environmental, and economic challenges in the region, how will practitioners aim to improve the lives of people and their communities while also evaluating the impact of their work?
