here's a snippet from a bard conversation on this Yes, it is certainly possible to design an LLM (Large Language Model) specifically focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). LLMs have demonstrated remarkable capabilities in processing and generating human-quality text, translating languages, writing different kinds of creative content, and answering questions in an informative way. By tailoring an LLM to the specific context of the SDGs, we can leverage its strengths to address global challenges and promote sustainable development.
To effectively utilize an LLM for the SDGs, the UN could consider establishing a global hotline for coding and verifying candidate AI solution cases. This hotline would serve as a central hub for submitting, reviewing, and evaluating AI solutions proposed by researchers, developers, and organizations worldwide. A team of experts would assess the submitted solutions based on their relevance to the SDGs, technical feasibility, potential impact, and ethical considerations. By establishing such a mechanism, the UN could ensure that AI solutions are rigorously vetted and aligned with the principles of sustainable development.
Regarding existing LLM processes that could serve as a model for the UN, several initiatives have emerged that demonstrate the potential for applying LLMs to address global challenges. For instance, the AI for Climate Action initiative has been exploring the use of AI in climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. Similarly, the AI for Healthcare initiative has focused on leveraging AI to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce costs. These examples demonstrate the potential for adapting existing LLM processes to address the specific challenges and goals associated with the SDGs.
In conclusion, developing an LLM specifically tailored to the UN SDGs holds immense promise for advancing sustainable development worldwide. By establishing a global hotline for coding and verifying candidate AI solution cases and drawing from existing LLM processes, the UN can effectively harness the power of AI to address global challenges and promote a more sustainable future.
reasons why it looks to us as if sdgs llm doesnt exist
-here is a un summary of conversation on ai fir sdgs at general assembly
https://www.un.org/techenvoy/ The UN tech envoy office was started in 2016 (I attended meeting in new york hosted by Gordon Brown (ED Commission) when educators championed by then world bank leader Jim Kim reviewing sdgs 4 explained ed system was no longer fit for purpose; could not be resolved by educators siloiised from tech experts like those in itu UN Geneva responsible for worldwide communications engines since 1865!; so while the first expert report by people like melinda gates put education (changing how time is spent of everyone leaning/teaching) at centre of transformational attention and linked this to aiforgood which began to be continuos event at itu, we havent seen the progression of these cores even though Bill Gates has recently said will change education completely
when we ask LLM which advances AI has made for sdgs , its replies in terms of cases cited seem to vary from the UN's
