Please join us on July 9 at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET/6 PM CET for a virtual event hosted by the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, the AI Initiative at The Future Society and UNESCO to officially announce a formal partnership on the COVID-19 pandemic response. The alliance will provide an information service not yet available that is vitally important to facing and mitigating the crisis.

In parallel with the UN High Level Political Forum, the launch agenda will include details on the partnership and speakers from the private sector, academia, government, and multilateral institutions, including the World Bank, WHO and UN Global Pulse, offering unique perspectives on the roadblocks and opportunities to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics covered will include challenges with disparate data and determining meaningful information in the fight against the virus, as well as the importance of building multi-stakeholder collaborations.
