Since their inception, Artificial Intelligence applications have held great promise as technological tools to promote sustainable development in low and middle-income countries. A/IS have the potential to bring unprecedented levels of prosperity to all. We argue that realising this potential should entail working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and increasing awareness of “A/IS for development” (A/IS4D), an interdisciplinary research field that has been somewhat neglected.
We provide some examples of good practice in the development of A/IS focused on the satisfaction of the SDGs, To show how an interdisciplinary, development-oriented approach can have an impact on satisfaction of the SDGs, we briefly describe two A/IS projects. For the impact to be clear, we have chosen examples that are not too recent and are relatively large-scale, without wishing to disparage recent and small-scale projects. Reflecting on the problems identified in the literature and on the examples of good practice, we point to the main ethical and technological challenges to be addressed in the A/IS4D research field.
