CID Speaker Series presents Milind Tambe, Principal Scientist and Director of AI for Social Good; Professor of Computer Science; and Director of Center for Research in Computation and Society at Harvard University. He will discuss using artificial intelligence for social impact.

With the maturing of artificial intelligence and multiagent systems research, we have a tremendous opportunity to direct these advances towards addressing complex societal problems. In this talk, Professor Tambe will focus on the domains of public health and conservation, and address one key cross-cutting challenge: how to effectively deploy our limited intervention resources in these problem domains? He will present results from work around the globe in using AI for challenges in public health, such as maternal and child-care interventions; for HIV prevention; and in conservation efforts such as endangered wildlife protection. Achieving social impact in these domains often requires methodological advances. To that end, he will highlight key research advances in multiagent reasoning and learning, particularly related to restless multiarmed bandits, influence maximization in social networks, computational game theory, and decision-focused learning. In pushing this research agenda, the ultimate goal is to facilitate local communities and non-profits to directly benefit from advances in AI tools and techniques.

This is a hybrid event open virtually to the public and in-person at the Harvard Kennedy School for members of the Harvard Community. Lunch will be served.
