The UCL Centre for Artificial Intelligence is pleased to be involved in the Bloomsbury Festival 2020 with our Virtual Panel Discussion, “AI for Sustainable Development” on the 18th October 2020, at 2:30PM.


Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to be a key ingredient towards solving global and societal challenges (e.g. the UN sustainable development goals), such as climate change, global food security, or reducing inequalities. To understand the role of AI better, we will explore why and how AI can be useful to make and measure progress towards sustainable development.


Our Panel will be Chaired by our Director, David Barber and our panel will feature:

Karim Beguir (Co-Founder & CEO of InstaDeep)

Nyalleng Moorosi (Software Engineer for Google AI in Ghana)

John Shawe-Taylor (UNESCO Chair in AI, Professor of Computational Statistics and Machine Learning, UCL)

Catherine Holloway (Academic Director and co-founder of the Global Disability Innovation Hub, Professor in UCL’s Interaction Centre)

Marc Deisenroth (DeepMind Chair in AI at UCL; Deputy Director of UCL's AI Centre)

Sephora Madjiheurem (PhD Student at the Institute for Communications and Connected Systems (ICCS) at UCL)
