The benefits of AI will be of paramount importance for society in the years to come, in particular as a tool contributing to the fulfilment of the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. A wide range of critical fields of relevance to the Sustainable Development Goals, such as health, education, energy, economic inclusion, social welfare, the environment, as well as crime prevention, security, stability and justice, all stand likely to benefit from the progress being made in AI. How will we maximize the benefits and minimize the risk associated with this technology may be the greatest challenge of the global community for the years to come.
