AI technologies are rapidly growing and expanding across most industries and geographies. Thus, it is important to have a common and shared understanding of what is meant by AI, to know how AI can influence the Sustainable Development Goals, and to be aware of various risks and challenges leading to AI adoption.

Such knowledge, combined with insights from existing national AI strategies and successful use cases, will be instrumental in establishing the necessary knowledge base for governments and public organizations that wish to incorporate AI or establish AI strategies and policies.
