Zhu Z, Gong J, Feeley C, Vo H, Tang H, Ruci A, Seiple B, Wu ZY. SAT-Hub: Smart and Accessible Transportation Hub for Assistive Navigation and Facility Management, in AI for Social Good Workshop. ; 2020.Abstract

    The goal of the proposed project is to transform a large transportation hub into a smart and accessible hub (SA T-Hub), with minimal infrastructure change. The societal need is significant, especially impactful for people in great need, such as those who are blind and visually impaired (BVI) or with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as those unfamiliar with metropolitan areas. With our inter- disciplinary background in urban systems, sensing, AI and data analytics, accessibility, and paratransit and assistive services, our solution is a hu- man-centric system approach that integrates facility modeling, mobile navigation, and user interface designs. We leverage several transportation facili- ties in the heart of New York City and throughout the State of New Jersey as testbeds for ensuring the relevance of the research and a smooth transition to real world applications.

    Miller L, Rüdiger C, Webb GI. Using AI and Satellite Earth Observation to Monitor UN Sustainable Development Indicators, in AI for Social Good Workshop. ; 2020.Abstract

    There is widespread acceptance that data from earth observation satellites, combined with artificial intelligence, have the potential to play an important role to enable the quantification of the United Nations Sustainable Development Indicators (SDIs). However, building workflows that allow accurate and timely measurement of the SDIs from sub-national to global scales is proving challenging. We discuss a research program that aims to develop techniques to meet these challenges and help provide member states of the UN with effective methods of monitoring progress towards meeting the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
