We believe that technology, like artificial intelligence (AI) combined with cloud technology, can be a game changer, helping save more lives, alleviate suffering and restore human dignity by changing the way frontline relief organizations anticipate, predict and better target response efforts.

The initiative will harness the power of AI to focus on four priorities – helping the world recover from disasters, addressing the needs of children, protecting refugees and displaced people, and promoting respect for human rights.

Modeled after our AI for Earth and AI for Accessibility initiatives, we will work deeply with selected nongovernmental organizations (NGO)s and humanitarian organizations through financial grants, technology investments and partnerships that combine our AI and data science know-how with these groups’ core expertise.

Our aim is to expedite new AI solutions as quickly and broadly as possible in four areas: Basic health services for children are also in critical need around the world. Our longtime NGO partner, Operation Smile, uses machine vision AI and facial modeling to improve the organization’s surgical outcomes and help more children in need of facial surgeries.

Microsoft Further Commits to Ethical AI with New Humanitarian Program

As artificial intelligence becomes increasingly both advanced and pervasive, concern has grown about some of the ways in which it is being used.

“We believe that technology, like artificial intelligence combined with cloud technology, can be a game changer, helping save more lives, alleviate suffering, and restore human dignity by changing the way frontline relief organizations anticipate, predict, and better target response efforts,”

Through AI for Humanitarian Action, Microsoft aims to work deeply with humanitarian organizations that respond to human emergencies by providing financial grants, technology investments, and partnerships that bring together the company’s artificial intelligence expertise with the knowledge of the partner organizations.

“We are optimistic that AI for Humanitarian Action will accelerate the pace of innovation by managing strategic AI projects that demonstrate new applications, delivering reusable solutions and partnering with others to expand and scale initial projects,”

AI can optimize the delivery of aid to the 68 million displaced people in the world, and chatbots can help translate in order to determine needs across borders and languages more easily.
