People are full of illusions about the future development of AI technology. From climate condition to disease treatment, it seems that this technology can solve all the problems that human beings are currently facing. But in fact, the future created by artificial intelligence can also be very “grounded”, which can play a big role in our daily lives.

Even more gratifying is that this future is not far from us – but this future is not from Silicon Valley X-Labs, but in non-profit organizations, they use AI technology to create many of the most popular applications. . These applications are centered on serving humanity: from simplest automatic communication technologies to contextual learning based on deep data analysis, these technologies can help those communities with low levels of service grow rapidly.

Chat robot:

The chat bot is a new product in the field of mobile information, and only humans can play its role before. For years, organizations such as mRelief  and TalkingPoints have been using the simplest mobile information applications to meet user needs.

Recently, technology-based non-profit organizations have found new and more effective methods. A robot called Raheem.ai created by Facebook Messenger allows users to send reports to the police and give corresponding assessments, after which the user can provide follow-up support to the police. Although this interaction is very simple, its effect is immeasurable.

There are another Do Not Pay, it is the world’s first robotic lawyer, initially to help drivers who brought the prosecution unreasonable fines because of parking to the government, and now it can not only help tenants with the “landlady” fight They can even help the tramps applicable for public assistance. These chat bots can reduce the friction in traditional communication methods, act as your personal legal counsel, and they fit in your pocket and can be used anytime, anywhere.

Machine learning:

Although Crisis Text Line (a non-profit organization that provides SMS services for mental illnesses such as suicidal tendencies and depression) is still a communication model between people (mostly volunteers), but this one Technology non-profit organizations have the biggest database for youth crisis behaviors in the nation. In addition, the organization also uses artificial intelligence technology, once the risk information is received, the platform will respond quickly, and the response time will be reduced from 120 Sec. to 39 Sec.

Machine learning can even let you choose the source of electricity for your home gadget. A software developed by WattTime allows devices to clean energy through a simple switch. This machine-based learning product tells users when to power off smart devices, such as thermostats, to save energy. In this way, in order to minimize the use of non-clean energy, the machine algorithm will require you to use facilities that use clean energy such as wind energy, so your air conditioner may be used 5 minutes ahead of schedule or after 5 minutes.

Data mining technology:

While many examples of AI applications collect data through internal systems, data mining can help organizations conduct in-depth faster research, or can help organizations collect more information in the target market, based on market behavior and development. Trends make corresponding product decisions.

The first tool of the Transparency Toolkit, the technology-based non-profit organization based in Berlin, ICWatch, can use data mining in extraction of the information needed from public profiles, thus engaging in illegal activities such as government surveillance and drone attacks. Personal identification. The organization also manages several other different projects and tools, and their primary role is to create a more equitable use of big data for journalists and activists works in human rights field.

Are these companies affected by non-profit organizations?

Of course there are. According to the cost for applying artificial intelligence continues to decrease, these software will become very common. If you want to make efficient use of artificial intelligence technology, you must support it with a lot of data. For profit reasons, the average company may not be so happy to open up its own data, but for non-profit organizations,it’s not the case. They believe that open data can better serve knowledge sharing and public education. These technological non-profit organizations use these advanced technologies and open source their own data, which can greatly enhance the application of artificial intelligence.

However, even so, companies have a responsibility to play their part. Companies such as Accenture and google are using their in-house artificial intelligence talent to create tools that can have a positive impact. Accenture believes that AI can bring development opportunities, but also requires companies, technology leaders and governments to take responsibility and treat the technology perfectly. People-oriented principles must also be adhered to in the design of products and services, such as introducing accountability, promoting transparency and promoting fairness.

There are countless cases of using this technology and bringing good results, and the range of coverage ranges from refugee assistance to bankruptcy filings to child welfare solutions. Although we are still in the early stages of AI development and application, at least in terms of technology non-profit organizations, the development prospects of AI will be very bright.
