Our “AI for Social Good” Event at @BiLGiOfficial

We have organized a full-day event about “Artificial Intelligence for Social Good” at Istanbul Bilgi University. It was part of the AI Literacy Project, supported by Google Turkiye. The meeting was held in the Energy Museum. If you wonder about the setting in the photo above,

The first part was for a group of students, and the second part was a closed event for the representatives of major civil society organizations. All the output will be released as white reports in a month. Check out our webpage in a month.  The entire project team was exhausted but also relieved as we organized an event that would yield substantial outputs.
