as a diaspora scot my most valuable question:what rising ops & threats spun during UN's first 75 years?
source networks-practices of the economist 1993-1843; of james watt & adam smith since 1760?
OPS
FROM 1950S all engineering workers lives matter- source 5 places beyond old world east coast ie japan s.korea taiwan hk singapore
womens rural keynesianism =half a billion rural asian girls lives matter - source bangladesh & china from 1975
....front line community health servants matter renewed from 1975 started turning 20th c by eg nightingale uk barton us
every lifelomg student & teacher lives matter - started with zoom and in some asian nations earlier..
green lives matter- must start 2021 by going beyong nations borders ie un2.1
.THREATS
*the g8 as of 1945 fail to help each other solve different lives matter crises both inside and across borders
*going beyond slide ruler turns most economists into disgraceful political chicanery
*satellite communications used to dumb down eg tv advertise instead of celebrate lifelong action learning..
*300 trillion dollars of western pension money fails to rate sdg investments as asset grade

can we the peoples design a world in which each next child born has a great chance at life and livelihood. this is why nations met to unite at san francisco opera house 1945.Its a question that involves the design purpose of every market activity from health to education but seemed then and now to require priority clarification on investment and on peace building. because americans had kindly intervened twice to stop the old world from collapsing into wars there was an understanding the old world's empires .needed transforing- none more than btitain and japan the two islands which had taken over how most lives were organised in asia and africa.over the first 18 decades since machines and humans had evolved out of 1760s glasgow university - first engineer watt, first new market imagineer smith - the majority of the world's people still had no access to electricity grids, so little education, poor health, urgent subsistence challenges. instead of financial and public servants designed to help with livelihood and community development.it is reported that the moon race decade waved optimism all over the world- maybe so no human mission will be impossible. what happened next - was there an entrepreneurial way out for
the majority of asians who were still stuck in one of 3 broken financial systyems - either no banking for their needs, loan sharks or communism. this crisis
what if every famous speaker using the un platform had to also turn their speech into a max 5 minute video lesson- first audiences to rate these videos could be leading blacklivesmatter sports stars or other celebrities who wanted their young fans to do last mile service solutions...in our view if you work on implication of poverty museums sdgoal 1 that ever next baby - girl or boy's life matters - merits a chance at making most of life then depending on localities you audit which other goals matter first andjoin in worldwide new education mapping -swap solutions with places/peoples facing similar urgent system transformation needs and startup resources.......
biggest colab search of 2018 where is damo extending its intercity adcademy; biggest question of 2017:where is Ali Baba University inviting partnerships? Examples:
New Zealand ... Germany ...UN 1 2 3 - Chinese only Aliresearch.com

GirlsWorldBank bids you welcome : happy job creating if you want to study sustainability goals job creation go study poverty first- locally- POP1-2-3 search out/celebrate your profession's world class expert who has 1 lived with poor, 2 as well as innovated her profession with the poor diagnosed system traps of poverty, and 3 sees it as sin not to priorities use of modern tech to end history's -sadly sport charities have been the worst in abusing girls usgynmaistics and maing a few men rich eg fifa instead of community building - will this end at alibaba olympics

New Opportunities,
New Challenges for AI

Houlin Zhao, ITU Secretary-General


Artificial intelligence (AI) will transform our lives. The question is: will it be for better or for worse?


At ITU, we are working hard with partners across the world to ensure the trusted, safe and inclusive development of AI technologies — and equitable access to their benefits. That is why we organize the annual AI for Good Global Summit, the leading United Nations summit on how to harness the power of AI to improve lives worldwide.


The Summit connects AI innovators with those seeking solutions to the world’s greatest challenges so as to identify practical applications of AI that can accelerate progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


This year’s Summit was organized into five “Breakthrough Tracks”: AI and Health; AI and Education; AI and Human Dignity and Equality; Scaling AI and AI for Space. There were also sessions on the future of Smart Mobility, AI and agriculture, AI’s role in arts and culture, the unintended consequences of AI — and much more.


In addition, the Summit showcased the latest in AI technologies — from drones, exoskeletons, and robotics to avatars, autonomous cars, and AI-powered health solutions.


In this feature on the 2019 AI for Good Global Summit, you will find key outcomes from the Summit as well as insights from a diverse range of experts examining the human impact of AI. We hope these stories inspire you to join us at the 2020 AI for Good Global Summit - we look forward to welcoming you in Geneva again 4-8 May 2020.
