We enter 2024 with powerful AI-backed tools that can do everything from plan a trip, render lifelike videos, and even generate artwork. But, what if we were able to apply this technology to a more meaningful end: improving the quality of peoples’ lives?

Join us, either in-person or online, for lunch and a panel discussion to announce Nava Labs’s foray into the world of artificial intelligence (AI).

Following welcome remarks from Nava's Chief Delivery Officer, Jodi Leo, and Benefits Data Trust CEO, Trooper Sanders, our panel will explore this very question.

We’ll also discuss how Nava’s partnership with the Gates Foundation and the Benefits Data Trust marks a first-of-its-kind exploratory project that seeks to answer if generative and predictive AI can be used ethically to help reduce administrative burdens for benefits navigators. If successful, we hope to scale our learnings to streamline how families with young children and other vulnerable populations can access benefits and services.
