Call For Papers

The AAAI 2020 Fall Symposium on AI for Social Good solicits paper submissions (2-6 pages) in the two disciplines below:
1. Humanitarian Relief and Development
2. Responsible AI in Healthcare

AI technology can have an incredible impact on how we address humanitarian issues and achieve sustainable developmental goals. The advances in AI can be utilized detecting and predicting how a crisis or conflict could develop, analyzing the impact of catastrophes in a cyber-physical society, and assisting in disaster response as well as resource allocation. Such AI techniques can allow better preparation for emergencies, help save lives, limit economic losses, provide adequate disaster relief, and make communities more reliable and resilient. This symposium will focus on all aspects of humanitarian relief operations supported by the novel use of AI technologies from enabling missing persons to be located, leveraging crowdsourced data to provide early warning for rapid response to emergencies, increasing situational awareness, to logistics and supply chain management.
Similarly, healthcare is one of the foremost challenges of today’s world, highlighted by the recent COVID-19 pandemic where it has come to the forefront of the global discourse. Moreover, AI in healthcare is characterized by the last mile problem, where delivering a practical solution that is reliable, robust to errors (especially in “break glass in case of emergency” situations), and graceful degradation has proven hard to implement. These have broader implications in the context of fairness, explainability, and transparency. Therefore, implementation and deployment of AI systems in production in healthcare bring up challenges that go far beyond model building and scoring. This symposium will also focus on a broad range of AI healthcare applications and problems encountered, including but not limited to: automation bias, prescriptive AI models, explainability, privacy and security, transparency, and decision rights, especially in the context of deployment of AI in healthcare.
