‘Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Development’

A JustShare forum exploring how Artificial Intelligence can play a role in helping sustainable development and reaching the SD goals. In what ways can AI lead to higher productivity, income growth and demand that can create more jobs and prosperity? What are the ethical challenges raised by AI adoption and how can we ensure sustainable and ethical AI programmes? How can we make sure that it is not a major substitute for work, replacing jobs that are often the only source of income for many citizens? 

Join us as our excellent line up of speakers address these vital questions and more.

Speakers include: the Revd Canon Dr Malcolm Brown, Director of Mission and Public Affairs for the Church of England

Chair: the Revd Katherine Hedderly, All Hallows by the Tower
