  • The emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly progressing with wide impacts across many sectors. As part of AI for Good’s new series on AI for Earth and Sustainability Science, this session provides an assessment of the impact of AI on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) specifically looking at Sustainable Cities (SDG11) and Climate Change (SDG13). Using a consensus-based expert elicitation process, it is clear that AI can enable the accomplishment of 134 targets across all the goals, but it may also inhibit 59 targets. However, current research may be overlooking important aspects. The fast development of AI needs to be supported by the necessary regulatory insight and oversight for AI-based technologies to enable sustainable development. Failure to do so could result in gaps in transparency, safety, and ethical standards leading to less than optimal outcomes for the environment and related sustainability targets

    This live event includes a 30-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community.
