Application of AI for Sustainable development in developing countries

Speaker:  Sanjay Misra – Lagos, Nigeria
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


Sustainability refers to managing change in an equitable manner such that, the utilization of resources, the direction of investments, the focus of technological development and institutional transformations are all in harmony and enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations. To ensure sustainability by ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that people around the world enjoy peace and prosperity, the United Nations rolled out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. 
Recent studies show that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can provide solutions for achieving and realization of the SDGs.  In fact, if the strong power of AI will be applied correctly, it can provide an excellent tool for attaining United Nations’ SDGs. In this presentation, we demonstrate how AI can be implemented in solving problems related to each STG goal. Several examples are presented for showing the feasibility of AI applications in various areas.
