We are launching the third topic in our focus series on the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). In March we will start publishing posts relating the goal of “quality education”, which is SDG number four on the UN list.

AIhub focus issue on quality education

Would you like to get involved?

We are looking for researchers, users and stakeholders to write, or talk, about their work. If you are interested in communicating your education-related efforts to a wider audience then please do get in touch. Likewise, if you would like to make recommendations for people or specific topics we should feature, just send us an email.

We plan to cover a number of different aspects of “quality education”. This will include training and education in the field of AI itself, and also using AI methods to improve education generally. All levels of education will be considered, from schools to University level, from the general public to industry and professional development.

The deadline for contributions is 9 March 2021.

About the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 interlinked goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.

The 17 SDGs are: (1) No Poverty, (2) Zero Hunger, (3) Good Health and Well-being, (4) Quality Education, (5) Gender Equality, (6) Clean Water and Sanitation, (7) Affordable and Clean Energy, (8) Decent Work and Economic Growth, (9) Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, (10) Reducing Inequality, (11) Sustainable Cities and Communities, (12) Responsible Consumption and Production, (13) Climate Action, (14) Life Below Water, (15) Life On Land, (16) Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions, (17) Partnerships for the Goals.

The world bank have created a series of interactive visualisations to display some key measures relating to each SDG. See the one for good health and well-being here. Access the whole series here.
