Sustainable Development Goals
The Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development was approved by United Nations Member States at the World Summit for Sustainable Development in 2015. In order to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all people, 17 goals, 169 targets, and a political declaration were established. Education, equality, access to energy, availability of water, infrastructure development or guidelines for sustainable consumption, are some of the objectives of this international agenda that takes over the eight Millennium Development Goals in force since 2000. It is also universal, and therefore applicable to all countries, including the so-called developed ones.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDA) aim to be a global instrument to eradicate poverty and reduce inequalities and vulnerabilities, under the paradigm of sustainable human development.
There is a wide range of emerging digital technologies with enormous potential to promote greater quality of life in human beings, whether at the level of economic, food, health, and welfare support. For example, digital technologies such as apps or Augmented Reality, 3D models used in the Digital Twins, 3D Printing, or Virtual Reality, as well as the emerging paradigms of AI such as Deep Learning, Blockchain or Edge Computing.
We work to discover the potential of Artificial Intelligence and digital technologies, to solve the current challenges of Agenda 2030, and therefore those proposed by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. We propose a set of socio-technological recommendations, by which it is possible to act in support of the achievement of these objectives.
