The International Conference “AI for People: Towards Sustainable AI” was born out of the idea of shaping Artificial Intelligence technology around human and societal needs. While Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be a beneficial tool, its development and its deployment impact society and the environment in ways that need to be thoroughly addressed and confronted.

This year’s edition will focus on Sustainable AI, covering different aspects of social development, environmental protection, and economic growth applied in the design and deployment of AI systems. The conference will provide its participants with opportunities to gain a better understanding of the major challenges of utilizing AI for the societal good. Additionally, it should serve as an incubator for interdisciplinary communities that share a research agenda to exchange and discuss ideas related to the design and application of Sustainable AI. Here, Sustainable AI is a movement to foster change towards greater ecological integrity and social justice in the entire life cycle of AI systems.
