The University of Southern California has recently created the Center on Artificial Intelligence for Social Solutions or CAISS, specifically to develop uses of artificial intelligence--AI--for use cases of interest to social entrepreneurs.
The Center is a collaboration between the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and the USC School of Social Work. Eric Rice, an Associate Professor from the School of Social Work, has been tapped to lead CAISS.
The potential for AI to be an effective tool for entrepreneurs with no background in technology is confirmed by Rice himself. When asked about his LinkedIn profile URL, he acknowledged not only that he doesn't have one, but also said, "I'm a bit of a Luddite."
