The 3rd annual AI for Good Global Summit (AIGGS) is being held this week in Geneva, Switzerland to provide a forum to identify practical applications of AI to help accelerate progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 2019 event – being run from 28-30 May, will highlight AI’s value in advancing education, healthcare and wellbeing, social and economic equality, space research, and smart and safe mobility. It will propose actions to assist high-potential AI solutions in achieving global scale. It will host debates around unintended consequences of AI, as well as AI’s relationship with art and culture. A ‘learning day’ will bring together potential AI adopters with leading AI experts and educators.

The three-day event connects AI innovators with problem owners to identify practical applications of AI to accelerate progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and ensure trusted, safe and inclusive development of AI technologies and equitable access to their benefits.

The AI for Good Global Summit is the leading United Nations platform for inclusive dialogue on AI. The brainchild of IFIP stalwart, Steven Ibaraki, AIGGS is organised by ITU (International Telecommunication Union), the United Nations specialised agency for information and communication technologies.

Key sessions from the event are being Webcast live and can be accessed here.
