Artificial Intelligence, People and the Planet

(New York, USA) The event will bring together leading Swedish and U.S. academics, the private sector and UN organizations interested in exploring the risks and opportunities that artificial intelligence poses for sustainability and the 2030 Agenda. How can we ensure that applications of artificial intelligence help us address urgent social and environmental challenges? In what ways can these technologies be used to help global and local communities to navigate a turbulent climate future? And how can academia, government actors and the private sector in Sweden and the U.S. work together to accelerate innovations that would tap into the strengths of AI, to support the 2030 Agenda?

UN Global Pulse is happy to participate and speak at the event on its work using new data sources and kinds of information to advance development, humanitarian action, and peace.
