Global Health & AI Challenge

The Global Health & AI Challenge, a partnership between the Dalla Lana School of Public Health and Vector Institute will engage students in critical dialogue and problem-solving scenarios on some of the most complex global health challenges of our time. Threats to global health exist due to complex, interrelated economic, political, social, cultural, environmental, and historical factors, and thus demand creative, interdisciplinary and intersectoral solutions. Technological innovations and interventions such as AI offer the potential to disrupt these complex threats.
