The challenge was open to any organization using AI to tackle social and environmental issues around the world, whether they had extensive experience with AI or were just beginning to explore potential uses of the technology. Each of the 20 selected teams will receive a grant from a $25 million funding pool, coaching from AI experts, access to and consulting from the Google Cloud and the opportunity to join the Launchpad Accelerator program.
