Global Health Design: Artificial Intelligence for Global Health Priority Diseases

This is the fifth seminar of the six-part seminar series Massive Action: Global Health Design, led by visionary designer Bruce Mau.

In this seminar, we will learn about the project Artificial Intelligence for Global Health Priority Diseases, led by faculty fellow Jude Dzevela Kong, and community fellow Bruce Mau will offer insights and lead a workshop on the project's design opportunities.

About Artificial Intelligence for Global Health Priority Diseases

This initiative will address existing knowledge and practice gaps in the Global South by establishing a multi-regional network to deepen the understanding of how responsible artificial intelligence solutions can improve public health preparedness and response. It will strengthen the capacity of interdisciplinary researchers and policy makers across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East and North Africa to support early detection, response, mitigation, and control of developing infectious disease outbreaks. Projects within the initiative will work closely with governments, public health agencies, civil society, and other actors to generate new knowledge and collaborations to inform practice and policies at subnational, national, regional, and global levels.
