Targets of this goal
By 2030, it is necessary to achieve the following targets:
- Develop reliable, sustainable, resilient and quality infrastructure to support economic development and human well-being
- Promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and significantly increase the industry's contribution to employment and GDP
- Increase access of small industries and other businesses to financial services
- Modernize infrastructure and reconvert industries to be sustainable and environmentally sound
- Increase scientific research and improve the technological capacity of industrial sectors
We can currently advance towards the attainment of this goal:How does technology contribute to this SDG? See what we propose and tell us what you think
We have analyzed the literature and extracted the following ideas on how technologies are favouring this SDG.
See also what we propose and tell us what you think
Infrastructure health monitoring is a field currently in incipient development, with pioneering work using IoT, drones, Digital Twins, deep learning and Artificial Vision systems
Big data and automated simulations can predict the extent of damage from major disasters and make objective decisions about the order of infrastructure restoration, helping to create more resilient interconnected infrastructure
3D geometric digitization systems based on images for structural monitoring already achieve high precision even in dynamic conditions or with images taken from UAVs (drones)
Traffic congestions are much better predicted using deep learning (neural networks) than via classic time series systems, which allows anticipating problems and reorganizing the flow of vehicles
AI systems, IoT and other disruptive technologies make it possible to optimize transport networks and make them more efficient and sustainable
The proposed actions on which we introduce an opinion poll for this SDG, are described below:
Poll for SDG-9
The analyses of interrelationships between emerging technologies & AI, and the possibilities they offer to pursue the SDGs, led us to propose a series of actions and/or potential projects to develop.
Among these recommendations, which one is more important in your opinion?
R9.2 - AI to support the design of communication and transport infrastructure and networks
R9.3 - Digital transformation of the economy, through the development of Industry 4.0 and support for innovative startups
R9.4 - Smart monitoring of pollutant emissions in industry and transport
R9.5 - Increased investment in public and private R&D, generating open, sustainable and inclusive innovation systems
