Civic AI Lab on UNESCO’s top 100 list of AI solutions worldwide
Civic AI Lab’s proposal for the UNESCO’s International Research Centre on Artificial Intelligence (IRCAI) has been rated early stage with great potential and therefore made it to the top 100 projects list of AI solutions worldwide.
IRCAI is releasing a list of 100 projects solving problems related to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the application of Artificial Intelligence, from Africa, Europe and Americas, Asia and the Pacific, and the Middle East. Civic AI Lab is one of ICAI’s 29 labs.
IRCAIs’ main aim is to scope and showcase solutions from around the world and contribute to the SDGs by creating the world’s largest sustainable solutions platform, and helping these solutions grow even more effective and impactful.
