AI for Sustainable Development – In Conversation with Ángel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General

“To realise the full potential of this promising technology, we need one critical ingredient. That critical ingredient is trust. And to build trust we need human-centred artificial intelligence that fosters sustainable development and inclusive human progress – and I stress the word inclusive,” he said. 

Artificial Intelligence has the potential to transform our lives – in areas such as education, health, transport, communication and energy. But it is also fuelling anxieties and ethical concerns, Ángel Gurría, Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, told at an event organised by the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development.

Ángel Gurría who was speaking on the topic “AI for Sustainable Development” has been the Secretary-General of the OECD since 2006. Under his leadership, the OECD’s reach, impact and relevance has expanded in many policy areas, delivering on the OECD’s mandate to design, develop and deliver better policies for better lives.
