Artificial Intelligence is a part of our daily lives already-and it will also have a crucial role in solving the world's biggest challenges, such as ending global hunger. With massive increases in computing power and advances in technology (e.g. mobile networks, drones), we will have more data for AI at our hands than ever before. The panelists will discuss how AI's disruptive potential will help end global hunger with diverse perspectives from XPRIZE, Google, Gates Foundation and UN WFP.
