Artificial intelligence (AI) will revolutionize how we live, how we work and how we interact. It will reshape economic sectors and jobs and enhance the possibilities for increased productivity. The application of artificial intelligence can also help address social and environmental concerns.
While the AI research ecosystem is growing, there is still limited research into how AI can positively transform economies and societies, and supporting the achievement of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. There is also limited understanding of what public policies and governance frameworks would be most conducive to achieving this transformational impact while also addressing risks and concerns, such as bias, fairness, safety, explainability or accountability.
The challenge for policymakers is deciding how to best develop capabilities in AI to address development priorities while ensuring a good governance.
