Título conferencia: “AI for Social Good: Key Techniques, Applications, Results Milind Tambe”


Discussions about the future negative consequences of AI sometimes drown out discussions of the current accomplishments and future potential of AI in helping us solve complex societal problems.  At the USC Center for AI in Society, CAIS, our focus is on exploring AI research in tackling wicked problems in society. This talk will highlight the goals of CAIS and three areas of ongoing work that have led to decision aids for humans in the field. First, I will focus on the use of AI for assisting low-resource sections of society, such as homeless youth. Harnessing the social networks of such youth, I will illustrate the use of AI algorithms to help more effectively spread health information, such as for reducing risk of HIV infections. These algorithms have been piloted in homeless shelters in Los Angeles, and have shown significant improvements over traditional methods. Second, I will outline the use of AI for protection of forests, fish, and wildlife; learning models of adversary behavior allows us to predict poaching activities and plan effective patrols to deter them; I will discuss concrete results from tests in a national park in Uganda. Finally, I will briefly review our earlier work on the challenge of AI for public safety and security, specifically for effective security resource allocation. I will discuss our “security games” framework that has led to decision aids that are in actual daily use by agencies such as the US Coast Guard, the US Federal Air Marshals Service and local law enforcement agencies to assist the protection of ports, airports, flights, and other critical infrastructure.  These are just a few of the projects at CAIS, and we expect these and future projects at CAIS to continue to illustrate the significant potential that AI has for social good. We will draw lessons for deploying decision aids in the field to assist humans.
