The emergence of artificial intelligence AI and its progressively wider impact on many sectors requires an assessment of its effect on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Using a consensus-based expert elicitation process, we find that AI can enable the accomplishment of targets across all the goals, but it may also inhibit 59 targets.
Strengthening international cooperation on artificial intelligence
Searching for just a few words should be enough to get started. If you need to make more complex queries, use the tips below to guide you. This paper gives a brief timeline of the evolution of the field of Artificial Intelligence AI , a field that is currently generating approximately sixty thousand research papers per year.
This represents a AI research is of interest around the world and this paper highlights many of the activities undertaken to stimulate this research in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Asia. In Fig. Timeline of policies, events, and breakthroughs of significance in the AI field. Counting scholarly publications is a common and easily understood measurement of research output. The graph in Fig. Globally, the field of AI has shown strong growth of This growth is markedly higher than the growth seen across all research, which has grown at a rate of 2.
The decreased cost of computing power paired with increased availability of large data sets for training machines is responsible for this high growth rate. Annual number of AI publications, all document types, — Source: Scopus.
Developing capacity for AI research, technology, and application is increasingly perceived as essential to national competitiveness, security, and economic strength. These strategies usually contain at least one of three frequent components:. AI was included as a priority area in the FY19 budget, particularly funding for projects focused on transportation, healthcare, workforce training, and military applications. For example, Canada became the first North American country to release a national AI strategy in and Mexico recently released AI research priorities and strategic outlines.
This document set key targets for China to become a world leader in AI theory, technology, and application by In addition to these investments, large datasets consistent with the size of the Chinese population and relatively relaxed data regulations have created an advantage for China. Beyond China, interest in AI in Asia is exemplified by various national-level document releases in recent years.
AI plans and programs are in various stages of development in Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Increase public and private investment in AI. Several European member states have also published national AI strategies in recent years, resulting in a diversity of approaches in the region. Several Nordic and Baltic countries have also formed a regional collaboration in to develop AI capacity.
Russia has released research priorities and strategic outlines while Tunisia and Kenya have formed task forces to examine the development of AI in Africa. Together, these efforts underscore the growing recognition by individual countries and regions of the potential impact of AI on society and human life and the need to develop knowledge and expertise in this field.
Recent national and regional policies reflect the importance of competitiveness in the field with calls for large investments, as well as the need to address the tremendous change that AI will bring to human society and the ethical implications. She has provided advice on strategy development to support evidence-based policy and program formation for numerous public and private stakeholders including the Public Health Agency of Canada, the New York City Department of Public Health and Mental Hygiene, and Acidophil.

Artificial intelligence AI has been one of the most controversial domains of inquiry in computer science since it was first proposed in the s. Defined as the part of computer science concerned with designing systems that exhibit the characteristics associated with human intelligence—understanding language, learning, reasoning, solving problems, and so on Barr and Feigenbaum, —the field has attracted researchers because of its ambitious goals and enormous underlying intellectual challenges. The field has been controversial because of its social, ethical, and philosophical implications. Such controversy has affected the funding environment for AI and the objectives of many research programs. AI research is conducted by a range of scientists and technologists with varying perspectives, interests, and motivations.
Stay up-to-date, stay connected. Artificial intelligence AI is a transformative technology that holds promise for tremendous societal and economic benefit. AI has the potential to revolutionize how we live, work, learn, discover, and communicate. AI research can further our national priorities, including increased economic prosperity, improved educational opportunities and quality of life, and enhanced national and homeland security. Because of these potential benefits, the U. The ultimate goal of this research is to produce new AI knowledge and technologies that provide a range of positive benefits to society, while minimizing the negative impacts. Strategy 1: Make long-term investments in AI research.
Artificial Intelligence AI is a potentially transformational technology that will have broad social, economic, national security, and geopolitical implications for the United States and the world. This general-purpose nature means that AI could have wide-ranging economic impacts across manufacturing, transportation, health, education, and many other sectors. While the United States is the world leader in AI, China is catching up fast and may lead in some areas and other governments are expanding their own AI capacity. Rather than a zero-sum game, many such efforts can be additive, benefiting global welfare. The U. Such policies could distort the development and benefits of AI for humanity, make the world less secure for the U.
Artificial intelligence AI is intelligence demonstrated by machines , unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals , which involves consciousness and emotionality. The distinction between the former and the latter categories is often revealed by the acronym chosen. Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of " intelligent agents ": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. As machines become increasingly capable, tasks considered to require "intelligence" are often removed from the definition of AI, a phenomenon known as the AI effect.

Artificial intelligence AI is a wide-ranging tool that enables people to rethink how we integrate information, analyze data, and use the resulting insights to improve decision making—and already it is transforming every walk of life. In this report, Darrell West and John Allen discuss AI's application across a variety of sectors, address issues in its development, and offer recommendations for getting the most out of AI while still protecting important human values.
