Artificial Intelligence may be the answer to a great set of issues that are apparent worldwide. AI would reform the human's daily life and bring new solutions to many industries. AI is deeply penetrating into the daily lives of people but still, there is a lot of untapped potential of Artificial Intelligence, especially towards the humanitarian cause. Scientist and AI experts are working to help solve some of the most important social and economic issues of our day. One of the most common problems for developing countries is to tackle poverty and AI can play a vital role.

Natural disasters, war or conflict, unavailability of affordable food, lack of education and life skills are some of the primary causes which lead to poverty. Artificial Intelligence can help to identify the gaps and regions which are most in need of help. This can be done through improving land quality and farming practices, improving the availability of education and helping inhabitants learning new skills to support communities etc.

Poverty is a multi-dimensional phenomenon can be addressed through the provision of basic needs to the world's poor and AI can catalyze the provision of such basics like adequate living standards, income-generating opportunities, empowerment, good quality of work and others. This live discourse covers stories, trends, opinions, and researches on the use of AI to reduce poverty by covering the multidimensional basics defining poverty.
