“The world needs hope, and artificial intelligence can bring us a lot of hope.”

“Everyone across the different AI ecosystems must take on the responsibility to be ethical.”

– Eric Loeb

Key takeaways & next steps:

  • Bridging the digital divide is a multifaceted challenge that involves addressing not only infrastructure but also connectivity, device availability, skill development, and content creation, particularly in underserved regions. 
  • In the rapidly-evolving artificial intelligence (AI) landscape, stakeholders must prioritize ethical and responsible AI development, even as regulatory frameworks struggle to keep pace with technological advancements. 
  • In discussions concerning AI, it is crucial to adopt an inclusive and multi-stakeholder approach, ensuring that all voices, including those of women and developing countries, are actively engaged and represented in shaping AI policies and initiatives. 
  • Digital technologies, including AI, have the potential to advance progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on solutions across various sectors like healthcare, education, and environmental conservation.
