Tech For Humanity Changemakers
CHM McGovern Prize Winners Tackle Health Inequity and Social Bias
Meet the first-ever CHM Patrick J. McGovern Tech For Humanity Prize Changemakers and learn about what they’re doing to make the world a better place.
Growing up in Ghana, Mercy Nyamewaa Asiedu became increasingly aware of the subpar health system and associated high mortality rates that affected her family and friends. As a biomedical engineer with global health experience, she is dedicated to using technology to decrease health inequities. Her Changemaker projects include a mobile phone application for telemedicine with AI-generated recommendations for chronic health conditions in sub-Saharan African as well as low-cost AI-enhanced cervical cancer diagnostic tools.
Michael Bernstein aims to design technology platforms that bring us together rather than drive us apart. As a social computing expert, he is focused on redesigning online spaces, with a recent focus on machine learning algorithms embedded in our social spaces. His Changemaker project focuses on promoting a more equitable distribution of voice in these algorithms through the development of a jury-based approach to AI.
Join us and be inspired by Mercy and Michael’s creative visions and current work for serving humanity through technology.
