AI and Health Disparities on a Global Stage
October 29, 2022 – November 1, 2022
Project Simu-Vaction challenges students to think globally about pressing local issues by participating in a simulation entitled, “AI and Health Disparities on a Global Stage.” The simulation will replicate an international meeting of the Global Partnership on AI, an international forum created by the French and the Canadian governments.
After six weeks of preparation, students will converge in Atlanta to play the roles of national delegates, journalists, and lobbyists. On “D-Day,” Tuesday November 1st, the challenge will be to write, debate and vote on a recommendation for one of the most challenging of all AI quandaries – “How can we ensure that AI designed to help address health inequities does not, in fact, increase such disparities?”
This timely initiative will be an innovative, inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural educational exercise, gathering students from American Universities (Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology), a Canadian University (the University of Montreal), and six European Universities (the University of Nantes (Nantes, France), the University of Florence (Florence, Italy), Leiden University (Leiden, Netherlands), the University of Cologne (Cologne, Germany), Semmelweis University (Budapest, Hungary), and the University of Birmingham (Birmingham, United Kingdom).
A complete ecosystem involving community partners, regulators, diplomatic offices, and businesses is being built to help, inform, support, coach, and reward students on this crucial question for our future around high technology, health, and equity.
