York to lead five-year Global South AI4PEP Network project

York University has received $7.25M from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to lead an international team on a five-year public health research project. The Global South Artificial Intelligence for Pandemic and Epidemic Preparedness and Response Network (Global South AI4PEP Network) project will be led by York University Assistant Professor Jude Kong. The funds will be used to develop equitable and responsible AI solutions and big data approaches to emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases (ERIDs). “ERIDs present global challenges, and as such, international communication and shared strategies, which build on varying types of expertise, are required to successfully address them,” explained Kong. “This project is a small step in that direction.” York Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
