Join Alice Schmidt, author of a new book on AI for Sustainability and discuss how to use AI for a more regenerative transformation.
In our ever-changing world, the challenges we face are growing increasingly complex. We are in the midst of a watershed moment regarding the need for sustainable transformation. Technology, and artificial intelligence in particular, can prove pivotal in our efforts to solve this sustainability puzzle. However, there is a significant gap between the sustainability and tech sectors, resulting in inefficiencies, missed opportunities and escalating risks for both people and the planet. Bringing these sectors’ goals into alignment is the key to a sustainable future for all of us.
Fast Forward takes its readers on a captivating exploration of AI, unveiling its untapped potential and hidden risks in shaping sustainable transformation. From work and education to science, ecology and social justice, the book delves into key areas of risk and opportunity. It critically assesses the role of big tech and other influential players, while shedding light on the impacts of AI on warfare, misinformation campaigns and other risks to democracy.
Authored by a diverse team of experts – global sustainability specialist Alice Schmidt, the impact-driven entrepreneur Claudia Winkler, AI expert Florian Schuetz and the life scientist Jeroen Dobbelaere – Fast Forward bridges the divide between sustainability and technology while tackling the important questions posed by individuals, organisations and societies worldwide since ChatGPT’s public release in 2022. Offering a variety of current real-life examples, the authors make a compelling case for the imperative of ethical and responsible AI. They highlight how these principles are instrumental in harnessing AI’s transformative capacity to revolutionize our approach to sustainability and create health, wealth, and well-being for all. Together, the authors aim to ensure that the power of AI is actively directed at effective, regenerative, sustainable transformation.
Packed with vivid examples and intriguing facts, Fast Forward ignites inspiration among techies and non-techies alike. It serves as a timely reminder that each of us has a stake in and the ability to shape a regenerative, sustainable and resilient future. Together, we hold the power to mould our collective destiny, and the moment to act is now.
Our interactive and participatory discussion with Alice Schmidt will aim to go deeper in the topic of regeneration and see how AI can be harnessed for this transition.
