From Robots to Rust: Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Development
AI is an innovative technology that will greatly influence the world's development. But how can we balance its benefits and dark sides to support sustainable development? AI is more than a model taking decisions, it includes a long chain of people, tasks and resources we must consider. As part of LU's Future Week, COMPUTE, AI Lund and the Agenda 2030 Graduate school will host a public seminar at which we will discuss the relation between sustainability and artificial intelligence. We will show examples of how AI can be a tool for sustainability projects and also discuss the importance and potential ways of making AI-based research and supercomputing more sustainable. We invite users, developers and other computing experts to discuss with us.
