AISquare is a platform dedicated to developing credible research and expert networks, to share, develop, and accelerate solutions for the local and global issues. Our current mission is to aggregate research and solutions, from around the globe, in one convenient location.
We are actively seeking detail-oriented and passionate people who are looking to be part of a mission and make a difference in these times of COVID-19. The best fit candidate needs to have strong communication, networking and research abilities, who is able to synthesize information fast. We are looking for fast-paced and organized individuals who are able to work efficiently while maintaining the quality of posts on COVID-19 at AISquare.
The regional correspondents will be responsible for developing blog and media posts that report on innovation in their designated areas. Since the work is virtual, we need someone who is responsive to email/text and has reliable access to the internet and a computer. Each correspondent has to be able to synthesize and post at least 5 brief articles/podcasts/videos per week, but more are encouraged. They should try and focus on solutions that are being created in places local to them, highlighting research that may not have gotten much exposure yet.
As part of this mission-driven, global organization, you will have an opportunity to work with the industry leaders from the public sector, private sector, and academia, in the realm of healthcare, technology, data science/AI, media and entrepreneurship. This exposure to solving human problems at a global scale will help further your future aspirations and build a purpose-driven life.
Furthermore, being a Regional Correspondent will give you access to the AISquare Global Summit, which is a digital conference featuring renowned speakers and influencers from a variety of fields. This event offers a unique opportunity to network with and learn from other members of the AISquare community.
