XPRIZE believes Artificial Intelligence will be central to solving humanity's grand challenges. Solutions to pressing problems related to health and wellbeing, education, energy, environment, and other domains important to XPRIZE can be found by capitalizing on the unprecedented quantities of data and recent progress in emerging AI technologies.

To support our mission to build a bridge to abundance for all, XPRIZE is, together with the United Nations (UN) specialized agency, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), hosting the inaugural AI for Good Global Summit, in Geneva Jun 7-9, 2017. This annual summit will gather government officials, UN agencies, NGO’s, industry leaders, and AI experts to address how artificial intelligence can help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and design a first UN-backed “AI Guiding Principles” to provide guidelines on ethical, technical, standardization, societal and policy issues related to AI.
