‘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? What are the transformation capabilities of AI for business and society? What are the challenges and opportunities faced when developing and integrating AI into a developing country.

Join us as our expert panel address these vital questions and more.
