This case study session is about understanding the value of collaborating with people not like you that are critical to your success. Harnessing the power of unlikely allies is not always as intuitive or simple as we may like. During this session we will briefly cover the concepts of “abundance thinking” and exponentially growing technologies and their power to scale impact when applied to the world’s greatest challenges. We’ll review two case studies of teams innovating in the field leveraging the power of scalable Artificial Intelligence technologies.

The Cases:

  1. Review the challenges and insights learned from a team improving predictions of Zika and Dengue outbreaks in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 
  2. Review insights and key learnings of a team making Mental Health Care accessible to Syrian Refugees in Lebanon. 

After this class, participants will take away an abundance mindset; how to apply highly scalable technologies in collaboration with uncommon partners. We’ll examine the practical application of human centered design, rapid prototyping and integration in the field. The critical roles of Non-Profits, Corporations, Startups, Research Institutions, and Governments will be discussed. Participants will also leave empowered to consider their own projects’ or organizations’ capacity to complement and encourage systemic change.
