For once someone has a thought on AI which is different from those self driving cars and voice recognition technologies and which focuses on much bigger facts of humanity. The UN summit on AI, which has already, began overviews the importance of artificial intelligence on sustainable development and assisting global efforts to eliminate poverty and hunger, and to protect the environment. In a video message to the summit, Mr. Guterres, UN Secretary- General called AI “a new frontier” with “advances moving at warp speed.” It focuses on reshaping the environment for better use to humans, offering help to the 3 billion people globally who live in poverty. As the title indicates ‘AI for Good Global Summit’, in Geneva, Switzerland is expected to bring a dynamic change in lives of people.
Many researchers expect that AI systems will help to assess and track measures to alleviate poverty. At present, there are few accurate data on where the poorest people live because household surveys are infrequently carried out in poor or remote areas, says Marshall Burke, an economist at Stanford University in California. With special sessions on sustainable living and poverty reduction, AI is transforming the world socially, economically as well as politically. From well developed algorithms in identifying the wealthy and poorest areas to deep learning technologies to diagnose malnutrition from photographs and videos of children, the summit showcases the bigger challenges to the world and brings better solutions.
