AI and Health Disparities on a Global Stage

October 31 @ 8:45 am November 1 @ 12:15 pm


Schedules can be modified.

Project Simu-Vaction is an invitation for students to think globally about local issue in participating in a simulation titled “AI and Health Disparities on a Global Stage.” The simulation will replicate an international meeting of the Global Partnership on AI, which is an international forum created by the French and the Canadian Governments.

After six weeks of preparation, students will travel to and meet in Atlanta to play the roles of national delegates, journalists, and lobbyists. On the Action Day, Tuesday November 1st, the challenge for them is to write, debate and vote a recommendation of one of the most challenging AI quandaries: How can we ensure that AI designed to help address health inequities does not, in fact, increase such disparities?

The overall initiative is featured as an innovative, inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural educational exercise, gathering students from American Universities (Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology), Canadian Universities (the University of Montreal), and six European Universities (Nantes University- France, the University of Florence, Italy, the University of Leiden, Netherlands, the Koln University, Germany, Semmelweis University, Hungary and the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom).

A full “ecosystem” involving community partners, regulators, diplomatic offices and businesses is being built to help, inform, support, coach, reward students on this crucial question for our future around High Tech, Health, and Equity.
