Tech for Humanity Changemakers

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 gaps in the health system due to limited technology for early diagnosis and treatment, and associated high morbidity and mortality rates that affected her family and friends. As a biomedical engineer with global health experience, she is dedicated to using technology to decrease these gaps and global 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.
