Webinar: Using Tech to Reduce Homelessness in Our City During Covid
October 27, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Whether you are a nonprofit/ charity fighting for social justice or a tech designer, this webinar is right for you!
COVID has exasperated the inequalities across the city. Since March 2020, more than 3 million jobs have been lost which has made residents more vulnerable to homelessness than ever before.
Right now, it takes someone facing homelessness up to 48hours to find critical services. How can we bring these numbers down in a data-driven, precise way? What role does emerging technology like artificial intelligence play especially during this pandemic?
Join us to learn How AI Can Serve the Underserved Community. Led by innovative, young entrepreneurs of Ample Labs, this session introduces an AI chatbot (Chalmers) which points individuals facing homelessness to personalized care.
Partnered with Ample Labs, the City of Barrie is the first municipality to implement an AI system to address homelessness. In this session, Ample labs also walk us through this noble case study.
