AI with Human Values for Sustainable Development

"Artificial intelligence can be a great opportunity to accelerate the achievement of sustainable develpment goals. But any technological revolution leads to new imbalances that we must anticipate."

Audrey Azoulay
UNESCO Director-General

 

Rapid technological advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as other advancing technologies such as robotics, cloud computing and Internet of Things, are transforming disciplines, economies and industries, and challenging ideas about what it means to be human. AI has enormous potential for social good and promoting the achievement of the SDGs if it develops in a way that benefits humanity, respects global norms and standards, and is anchored in peace and development.
