New developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have the potential to revolutionize our lives and help us achieve the SDGs. AI is a powerful tool that can help us tackle complex problems quickly and at scale.
However, to fully leverage the potential of AI in an equitable way, we must engage in discourse about the risks it poses and create safeguards in order to ensure a safe and prosperous future for all. Most importantly, as AI has the potential to disrupt systems at a global level, we must include voices from all regions and levels of society.
This session will gather technology innovators and investors, high-level government officials, civil society experts, and UN officials to advance guiding principles for creating a global safe environment for such innovations to flourish and help accelerate the SDGs.
THE WORLD NEEDS A HALFTIME TALK
The UN Office for Partnerships is working with Project Everyone, a not-for-profit communications agency co-founded by SDG Advocate and the screenwriter Richard Curtis, in collaboration with artist Es Devlin, to create the SDG Pavilion, a unique convening space and art installation.
We will come together at the United Nations General Assembly from 15–22 September 2023 for the SDG Summit and a full week of Halftime Talks in the SDG Pavilion to accelerate action for people for planet.
The SDG Pavilion will host a series of Halftime Talks about mobilizing the world to keep the promise of the SDGs.
