The second digitainable expert online event takes place on February 23-24, 2021: "digitainable Forum: Mindful use of Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence (D&AI) for the SDGs."
This event will facilitate exchange among a range of experts from the private sector, academia, research institutions, governmental agencies, and international development agencies on opportunities and challenges Digitalization & Artificial Intelligence (D&AI) pose to society, economy, and the environment in the context of sustainable development.
How are D&AI helping to address the gaps hindering the progress of the UN Agenda 2030? More specific, how are different D&AI technologies influencing the sustainable transformation pathways at a local, regional, national, and global level? How are the technologies being taken up by stakeholders, particularly the private sector and NGOs? What role can D&AI play for the sustainable transformation in light of COVID-19? These are just a few out of many questions that will be driving the event discussions. Furthermore, the event intends to bring forth the gaps identified in our research and stimulate the discussion with experts to address the vital ones.
In the digitainable Forum, the insights of the project digitainable will be presented and discussed; the forum will also act as a platform to exchange experiences, expert ideas, and best practices on the cross-section of D&AI for sustainability. Selected use cases from participants’ contributions will be presented for advancing the discussion. Within different sessions during the event, the opportunity to share knowledge about the mindful use of D&AI for the SDGs with experts from diverse backgrounds will be endorsed. Altogether, the event aims to facilitate dialogues that can assist in systematic advancement towards the alignment of D&AI for the SDGs and their respective indicators.
Information about peer speakers, registration, abstract submission, and program will be available soon on the digitainable Forum event webpage.
