Sustainable Development Goals

notes of Artificial Intelligence for class 9 and 10 , sustainable-development
    The impact of Artificial Intelligence on Sustainable Development Goals are:
  • AI Societal Impacts
  • AI Economical Impacts
  • AI Environmental Impacts

Let we discuss the impact of AI with 17 SDGs:-

AI societal Impacts

  • No poverty (SDG – 1) : Using AI technology, we can identify and help the most needy individuals, groups and regions as it reflects the poor and rich regions with the help of satellites. It helps to reduce poverty by improving agriculture and education levels through advanced AI enabled technologies..

  • Zero Hunger (SDG – 2) : According to the United Nations, by 2050, we will need to increase the world's food production by 70% to feed the world's population. Even today, one in eight people in the world doesn't get enough food to eat. Therefore, AI technology can helps
    • to grow perfect Crop by applying the advancement of agricultural tools and methods,
    • to maximizing the food production,
    • to get early warning of Crisis to warn the farmers about the potential drought, flood etc.
  • Good Health and Well Being (SDG – 3) : AI can improve health care by increasing preventive medicines, identifying specific treatments for parients and new drug discovery.
    Algorithm that uses AI, like Smartwatches, can analyze health data and underlying patterns to alert the users.
    It can be very helpful for the treatments and care of those patients who suffering from a serious problems like CORONA (Covid-19).

  • Quality Education (SDG – 4) : AI systems can be trained for providing quality education to all and promote lifelong learning.
    AI can bring drastic changes in the field of education system by -
    • providing personalized learning assistance to each students based on their laerning needs that may contains text, audio, vedio etc.,
    • providing intelligent and supportive learning environments with the helpof AI powered apps by which students targeted, customized and get real-time responses from their teachers.
    • AI can produce smart content of superior quality as a result, textbooks are being digitized to help students of academic grades and ages.

  • Gender Equality (SDG – 5) : If we talk about SDG 5 – Gender Equality, there is inefficient research done. The tools which are available such as voice agents and chatbots like Alexa or Siri gendered as female only. To improve this more research required for smart algorithms, image recognition, reinforced learning, or discrimination.
    AI can be used to solve gender pay gap problems by offering high freshers female applicants in all fields.
    Also, AI can helps in detecting online sexual harassment by monitoring the internal communications like emails, chats, documents etc. and bring it to the notice of employers.

  • Clean water and Sanitation (SDG – 6) : AI can be used for detecting any harmful bacteria and particles presents in water for ensuring to deliver clean and healthy water to all.
    Lack of Sanitation and Hygiene facility related issues leads to many diseases as well as crimes especially with young children and females. AI helps to detect such areas and ensure to provide or motivate towards sanitation at their own home.

  • Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG – 7) : AI can be helpful to provide affordable and clean energy to all by increasing the production of renewable energy, by adding AI technology that ensure to deliver the energy to each village or town.
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG – 11) : AI is capable to create smart cities that provide efficient resources to the people including quality education, improved sills, job opportunities, better access to health care and clean drinking water etc.

  • Peace, Justice and Strong institutions (SDG – 16) : AI technology will play a key role in handling the challenges like violence against children, human trafficing, cyber crimes etc. The tools can be trained for the laws and enforcement according to the need. Therefore, Justice and strong institutions based on the rules to be formed that are highly impacted through AI. App-based platforms and chatbots can help citizens to connect and engage with governments and many more.

  • Partnerships for the goals (SDG – 17) : AI can help to provide a partnership across governments,civil society, private sector, the United Nations, developing countries and others to achieve all the goals. This goal is achieved by increasing capacity, collaboration and knowledge sharing, enhancing use of technologies, improving data monitoring etc.

AI economical Impacts

  • Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG – 8) : There is a large gap between the jobs and skills available. AI can provide the desired skills for the jobs through tailored learning. AI can also help to analyze data to identify the people who need of loan and good or bad debtors based on previous transaction data, investors in business etc.

  • Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG – 9) : AI system helps in industry innovation in terms of solving complex problems. It can handle complex operations easily. It can also handle the issues with advancement like checking the structural defects of products, measuring the quality of products, waste management, smart recycling etc.

  • Reduce Inequalities (SDG – 10) : By using AI tools, inequalities can be reduced as AI tools do not have any emotions or free from bias. They can produce the results better than other tools. For example - AI used by social media websites to show up the contents of user's interest in his profile. Another example is job creation with equal employment using AI tools.
  • Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG – 12) :

AI Environmental Impacts

  • Climate action (SDG – 13) : AI can be useful in generating an alert in climatic situations. It can produce the alerts and warn the concerned department about climate change and leads to act accordingly.

  • Life below water (SDG – 14) : The life below water like animals living under the sea, under the river plays an important role in maintaining temperature and makes the earth suitable for all of us. AI can impact on these by identification of species, recording their needs, improve the supply chain, monitoring and regulation of illegal fishing, ocean cleaning etc.

  • Life on Land (SDG – 15) : AI systems can be helpful to protect from the various challenges on the life on land. It includes addressing species and habitants extinctions which are driven by climate change, pollution etc. It can also checking and preventing the wildfires, deforestation, etc.
