Leveraging AI for Education

Hosted by
Wadhwani AI

Since its inception in 2018, the Wadhwani Institute for Artificial Intelligence (Wadhwani AI) has strived to bring AI technology to address social challenges for vulnerable populations in India. We build and deploy AI solutions in partnership with stakeholders such as local governments and civil society organisations to improve large-scale public programs. Through our solutions, AI becomes an enabling technology that bridges the gap between problems and solutions, augments human capabilities and provides advanced decision support. As a result of our continued efforts, today Wadhwani AI has over 20 AI solutions in various stages of development or deployment across healthcare (infectious diseases, health surveillance, maternal and child health, and non-communicable diseases), agriculture (pest management, farmer advisory and crop yield estimation) and education (early childhood development).
Wadhwani AI aims to not only raise visibility of these solutions but also spotlight the scope and importance of leveraging AI-driven tools for the greater good among relevant stakeholders and partners who can spur partnerships and discussions going forward.
To this end, Wadhwani AI will partner with CSRBOX to deliver an in person session at the Annual CSR Summit facilitate a 60-90 minutes session on “Leveraging AI for education” involving representatives from non-profit and corporate organisations (CSR managers and other stakeholders from the landscape).
