“Revolutionizing Public Infrastructure with Google’s Cutting-Edge AI Startup Program”

Google’s newest startup program, announced on Wednesday, aims to bring AI technology to the public sector. The newly launched “Google for Startups AI Academy: American Infrastructure” will offer participants hands-on training from AI experts and other support for companies solving problems in areas like agriculture, energy, education, public safety, healthcare, telecommunications, transportation, urban development, and more. Over the course of twelve weeks, startups participating in the equity-free program will be guided by an AI curriculum developed by Google’s People + AI Research (PAIR) team and will participate in advanced sales and go-to-market workshops. They’ll also be able to access industry connections and, of course, tap into Google’s AI tools as they build. While much focus is on the AI companies building the models, tools, and interfaces for working with AI, a focus on real-world applications of the technology could impact communities at the local, state, and national levels, Google believes.

Google has just unveiled its latest endeavor – a startup program aimed at bringing the power of AI to the public sector. The newly launched “Google for Startups AI Academy: American Infrastructure” is designed to provide hands-on training and support for companies tackling challenges in various sectors including agriculture, energy, education, and more.

Under the guidance of AI experts and Google’s People + AI Research (PAIR) team, participating startups will undergo a 12-week program which includes an AI-focused curriculum and workshops on advanced sales and go-to-market strategies. Additionally, they will have access to industry connections and Google’s AI tools to aid in their development.

Upon completion, these startups will become part of the alumni community, joining the ranks of other infrastructure-focused companies such as JustAir, which uses AI to monitor air pollution, Cambio, focused on decarbonizing commercial real estate, and Sensagrate, working to reduce traffic fatalities.

Google has stated that they will select startups utilizing AI to increase productivity and address challenges in various industries, including disaster prevention, sustainability, smart manufacturing, and more. The deadline for applications is June 17th.

While much of the attention surrounding AI has been on the companies developing the technology, Google is emphasizing the impact it could have on local, state, and national communities. As such, they are encouraging all startups, not just those directly focused on the aforementioned industries, to apply if they are working towards creating more efficient and equitable public services.
