    Big Data and Artificial Intelligence: Helping to address the UN’s SDGs

    The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, peace and justice.

    This panel will discuss how big data and artificial intelligence can support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in an equitable, inclusive and sustainable way. Ethical issues such as bias and discrimination, governance and privacy will be explored along with lessons applicable to our own businesses; and there will be plenty of opportunity for audience engagement.
