In the age of rapid technological development, our life greatly depends on and benefits from the technologies around us, from household appliances and transportation vehicles to communicative platforms and healthcare. Artificial intelligence (AI), for example, is not only used in self-driving cars or voice recognition smartphones but it also plays a key role towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

In the AI for Good Global Summit, the UN Secretary General António Guterres (2017) stated that: “Artificial Intelligence has the potential to accelerate progress towards a dignified life, in peace and prosperity, for all people […] The time has arrived for all of us – governments, industry and civil society – to consider how AI will affect our future.” – United Nations Development Programme 2020, ‘Sustainable Development Goals’
