Stanford Using Artificial Intelligence to Meet the United Nations’ #1 Sustainability Goal
The elimination of poverty worldwide is the first of 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals for the year 2030. Stanford is mapping distribution of poverty using artificial intelligence to gain valuable real-time insights into progress against the goal to end poverty. This initiative combines machine learning with high-resolution satellite imagery to leverage fascinating new data on socioeconomic indicators of poverty and wealth.
