AI for Good Foundation

Fall 2020 Site Review

Position: Sustainable Development Policy Intern
Student: Government & Sustainability Studies Senior

Student Name: Lindsey Asis

I found the Sustainable Development Policy Internship with the AI for Good Foundation through UT’s Handshake page. The AI for Good Foundation is a nonprofit whose mission is to utilize Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning to pursue UN Sustainable Development Goals. I chose to pursue this internship because I felt like it would be a perfect avenue of blending my two majors of Government and Sustainability Studies, as well as give me an insight into international policymaking. My roles in this internship have included policy research, graphic design, social media management, and stakeholder interviews. The main projects I have worked on were the Intelligent Cities Project, geared at aiding cities advance their usage of AI for social welfare, and SDG Launchpad, a program for schools and universities to implement altruistic AI. My favorite part of this internship has undeniably been all of the opportunities to expand my portfolio. I really believe the responsibility granted to me in this internship has made me grow exponentially in the starting years of my career.
