Webinar: Launch of the NAIXUS Network in AI and SDGs
By 2030 AI will measurably influence and impact more than 8.5 billion people, across all sectors, and human & earth diverse ecosystems on an unprecedented scale. AI could help achieve 79 % of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), more specifically it can enable the accomplishment of 134 targets across all the goals, but it may also inhibit 59 targets.
In order to understand and take advantage of these opportunities Slovenia is launching NAIXUS, a multi-stakeholder Network of Centers of Excellence around the world which aims to bridge the gap between AI and SDGs by supporting cutting-edge research and applied activities on SDGs-related priorities.
The network is expected to mobilise researchers to collaborate on key AI methods and Sustainable Development domain topics, to reach critical mass on these topics and to collaborate across cultural and language barriers and focus on the science that is much needed to push the efforts. Since its launch in March 2021, IRCAI has been having extensive conversations with already 15 core partners across five UN regions and plans to launch the network in its current form during the STI 2022 forum.
