“Presented by Université Laval and Centre Interdisciplinaire De Recherche En Opérationnalisation Du Développement Durable (CIRODD)

The use of artificial intelligence is a growing phenomenon in our societies. AI is a powerful tool for working towards sustainability and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. On the other hand, the consideration of the SDGs leads us to question ourselves on the framework for the deployment of AI and on the way to mitigate the perverse effects that it can cause.

This session will explore initiatives that mobilize digital tools to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs while taking care to integrate the social and environmental dimensions in the development of these tools.
