National AI strategies and sustainable development: Taking the next steps towards AI for Good by DiploFoundation Friday, 31st May, 14:00-14:45 CESTInternational Conference Centre Geneva, Rue de Varembé 13, 1202 Geneva
You are kindly invited to our workshop on ‘National AI strategies and sustainable development: Taking the next steps towards AI for Good by DiploFoundation’ at this week’s AI for Good Global Summit.
The summit is being held on 28-31 May 2019 at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. It brings together various stakeholders to discuss how we can harness the power of AI to accelerate progress towards the achievement of the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The session aims to foster a productive discussion on existing national strategies for artificial intelligence (AI). A number of countries have developed or are developing national AI strategies that highlight areas of comparative advantage and national priority, as well as the potential scope for international co-operation. In our discussion, we will focus on the aspects of sustainable development and ask: What is already in place, what is missing, and what adjustments do we recommend to harness the potential of AI for sustainable development?
After the initial input from the session organisers, smaller discussion groups will develop their perspectives, keeping regional and local contexts and needs in mind. At the end of the session, we will have produced a list of key points and recommendations that will further the discussion around national AI strategies and country policies with a focus on sustainable development and AI for Good.
