06.07.2022 16:00 – 18:00
On Wednesday, July 6th, 2022, Prof. Dr. Stefan Feuerriegel (Chair of the Institute of AI in Management, LMU Munich) will present the lecture "Leveraging AI to reach the Sustainable Development Goals" a lecture of the lecture series "Artificial Intelligence in Science and Society."
Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) allows for unprecedented opportunities to make important progress towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations by 2030. In this talk, we present several AI-powered tool from our research to support decision-makers in this objective. Key challenges include the use of novel (often unstructured) datasets, scaling analyses to large-scale, population-wide datasets, and using AI to improve decision-making for the better of society. Among others, we will answer specific questions of immediate impact: How can AI help in monitoring global development aid? How can AI support the global allocation of development aid to countries in need and thereby optimize progress towards reaching the SDGs? Our results are of direct relevance for decision-makers and policy institutions to promote evidence-based decisions targeting the SDGs?
The lecture is a component of the new minor "AI as a major Minor" (AIM@LMU, https://www.kiml.ifi.lmu.de/studies-teaching/ringvorlesung), currently in the planning phase, and open to all LMU students.
