What is SICON2023?

The Social Innovation Conference is back for 2023 with Our future with AI: From science fiction to social fiction. SICON2023 brings together renowned thought leaders between October 16th and November 16th.

What is AI and Poverty alleviation about?

Rapid advances in AI present an opportunity to harness the power of technology to help solve a wide range of real-world problems and improve social outcomes. However, advances in AI also pose threats that can have devastating impacts.

To kick off SICON2023, and timed with Anti-Poverty Week, we are bringing together renowned thought leaders to explore the impact of AI on poverty. In this full day Flagship event, we will seek to answer the question: How do we collectively design a world where AI is used to advance social good?

Join us at the National Museum of Australia on October 16th from 9am to 4pm.
