ERF 23 Workshop on Advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals with autonomous robots

Updated: May 24, 2023


Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are driving the creation of more sophisticated, autonomous and specialised robots that can not only perform multiple tasks with great ease, but also analyse, learn and self-improve in dynamic environments. During the ERF2023, join this leading panel with experts from the AI for Good community to find out how robotics and AI will help unlock our human potential and advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and voice your thoughts, questions and ideas on how we can shape a better future together.


Which are successful use-cases where AI-powered robots are providing effective solutions to societal challenges helping to accelerate the SDGs?
What are recent advances in robotics that are moving us closer to achieving the SDGs by 2030 and which are the contributions of the AI for Good community?
What social, ethical and economic challenges need to be addressed to ensure a successful human-centred implementation of robots?
