Sustainable AI conference 2021

AI for Sustainability and the Sustainability of AI


AI can be an important tool for sustainable development. There is an almost overwhelming number of recent publications showing the various ways in which AI can be used for the sustainable development goals. However, these uses may come with a cost – a cost that is yet to be thoroughly assessed, evaluated and balanced. For this reason, Prof van Wynsberghe from the University of Bonn, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Institute for Science and Ethics, is launching the world’s first conference on the topic of Sustainable AI. The aim of this conference is to get researchers of all relevant disciplines talking about the environmental, social and economic costs of designing, developing, and using AI.
