Workshop Champions AI and Voice Technology for Social Change

In November, California State University, Northridge students got a chance to see how leading-edge technology can be a powerful tool for societal change at the “Artificial Intelligence x Social Entrepreneurship” workshop. The workshop was co-sponsored by CSUN’s Information Technology department and campus Amazon Alexa Fellow Tim Tiemann, managing director of the CSUN Innovation Incubator, housed within the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics.

The workshop focused on how artificial intelligence (AI) and voice technologies might be used to improve housing, food insecurity and sustainability conditions in at-risk communities. (Read more about the workshop here.)
