Mia Dand, founder of Women in AI ethics, and one of the world’s leading voices in the field of AI ethics, invited me to talk about what what AI means for sustainability. Here is a quote of mine:
Environmental sustainability is one of the most promising domains to deploy ‘AI for Good’. The environment is an excellent use case for collecting and analyzing data that help us to better understand and address key environmental challenges. In contrast to the use of AI in ‘human settings’, you typically don’t run into problems of privacy and discrimination when using it for environmental purposes.
