Expert workshop on AI for Sustainability
16 March 2022, 11:00 - 13:00
Dubai - Pavillon Spain
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can contribute to reaching the European Green deal targets and global Sustainable Development Goals in various ways. This can be, for example, through a more efficient use of scarce resources, prediction and management of environmental impacts, optimisation of production processes, and policy foresight ideas. A global value-based conversation is needed to address the opportunities as well as implications of AI for sustainability and the green transition.
During this workshop a number of renowned international experts will explore the role of AI to support the green transition and will showcase example of EU research to promote the EU vision to promote sustainable and trustworthy AI in the world. As the implications of new digital technologies such as AI transcend borders, the EU seeks cooperation with like-minded countries and the broader multi-stakeholder community and will support a human-centric approach to AI.
