DAIDALOS - The Role of AI in Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals

19 Apr 2022   16:00

We invite you to the online discussion "The Role of AI in Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals" that will explore the topic of artificial intelligence and sustainability with renowned researcher Ricardo Vinuesa from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

This is the fourth event of a discussion series called DAIDALOS co-organized by the AI Center FEE CTU and our friends at Machine Learning Meetups (MLMU).


The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and its progressively wider impact on many sectors requires an assessment of its effect on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Using a consensus-based expert elicitation process, we find that AI can enable the accomplishment of 134 targets across all the goals, but it may also inhibit 59 targets. However, current research foci overlook 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.
