AI for Good Appoints Dr. Ebtesam Almazrouei as Chair to Drive Global Impact across all of the UN’s 17 SDGs in Geneva, Switzerland.

Geneva, May 2024: AI for Good, the leading United Nations platform dedicated to leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) for positive global impact, has announced the appointment of Dr. Ebtesam Almazrouei as Chairperson of the AI for Good Impact Initiative during the AI for Good Global Summit 2024 in Geneva, Switzerland.

The AI for Good Impact Initiative was launched by ITU, the United Nations specialized agency for digital technology, to harness the power of AI to address global challenges and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The initiative supports ongoing activities and ambitious moonshots across all 17 SDGs and regions of the world for global impact.

“AI presents a unique opportunity to accelerate progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals,” says Dr. Ebtesam Almazrouei, Chairperson of the AI for Good Impact Initiative. “We should work together to foster strategic collaboration for inclusive development and scalable AI solutions to advance the world and benefit humanity through responsible, inclusive, and sustainable applications of AI.”

The AI for Good Impact Initiative will support projects, challenges, collaboration efforts, AI governance and frameworks, capacity building, AI resources and studies, regional programming, and projects carried out by the global AI for Good community. The initiative aims to raise 20,000,000 CHF annually to achieve scale and global impact across all of the UN’s 17 SDGs. It will also support and foster the participation of developing countries in AI for good programming and initiatives.

Dr. Ebtesam Almazrouei will chair the Executive Impact Initiative board known as the Executive Impact Circle, which brings together high-level representatives from government, non-governmental organisations, industry, and academia. Under her leadership, this group will spearhead the AI for Good Impact Initiative, setting its vision and strategic direction.

Under Dr. Almazrouei’s leadership, the AI for Good Impact Initiative will focus on building global AI ecosystems by fostering strategic partnerships and collaborations with governments, NGOs, and private sector organisations to establish inclusive, repeatable, and scalable AI solutions, promote ethical AI, and build responsible use of AI for Good.
