Advanced artificial intelligence (AI) tools foster human creativity and enable a deeper understanding of complex problems affecting the environment, society, and economy, opening the door to innovative solutions and sustainable practices. Used consciously, AI tools can play an important role in achieving Sustainable Development Goals globally.
Through data analysis, visualization, and entering adequate inputs and commands, AI can help make these goals easier to understand and achievable, which is the key to achieving sustainable development on a global level.
The SDGs are part of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations, the fulfillment of which the signatory countries, including Serbia, have committed themselves to. These 17 goals are a global call to action to eradicate poverty, protect the environment, mitigate climate change and its consequences, and ensure everyone has equal opportunities to live in peace and prosperity.
