It began with one breakthrough project.
After helping the American Cancer Society apply machine learning to breast cancer research with exciting results, we wanted to do more. We recognized a model worth repeating. A model that could change the world.
Cancer. Heart disease. Homelessness. Climate change. Solving the world's most complex problems is as important as it is hard.
Not-for-profit organizations dedicated to solving these problems could move faster with the help of artificial intelligence, big data, and cloud computing. But with limited funding, expertise, and bandwidth, these tools are often out of reach.
Slalom has always been passionate about helping organizations unlock their potential with cutting-edge technology and analytics. Now, Slalom Innovation for Good is helping not-for-profits around the world use these tools to make critical progress, faster.
To tackle these huge problems, we have to care enough to build trust, work together, and multiply our knowledge. Collaboration is what propels us forward.
Making a difference
Right now, we have teams partnering with several of world's leading scientific organizations to apply machine learning to various aspects of cancer research. We've also recently completed projects to measure the impact of educational programs for at-risk youth in Silicon Valley and empower practical solutions to homelessness in Camden, New Jersey.
Innovation for Good is part of Slalom's AI Center of Purpose, a global initiative focused on scaling responsible use of AI in all areas of our business. We believe that artificial intelligence (AI) is the most disruptive force available today, with nearly infinite potential to drive transformation for our clients and their customers. We're assembling a global team of our best experts to partner with our local markets and deliver more high-impact AI solutions for clients—and we're committing 25% of that revenue to Innovation for Good efforts, making this powerful technology more accessible for cause-based organizations.
Please join our mailing list to follow this exciting initiative as it unfolds! Together, we can make the most of AI to improve the future.
