EXPO Dubai 2022

EXPERT WORKSHOP ON AI FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Venue: Pavilion Spain (Multipurpose room)
Date and time: 16th March 2022, 14:00-16:00 GST/11:00-13:00 CET

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.

At this workshop experts explored the role of AI in the green transition. The EU aims to promote the vision of 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.

Dr. Spiros Mouzakitis (I-NERGY Coordinator, ICCS) participated presenting the project's scope.
