Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a highly capable technology that is increasingly embraced by companies, governments and NGOs. AI does not only represent a new breeding ground for entrepreneurial opportunities, it may also be an important tool to help societies tackle grand challenges such as hunger and climate change. The panel will discuss the following questions: How can AI be applied by entrepreneurs to advance sustainable development goals (SDGs) in Benin and Francophone West and Central Africa more generally? What are promising use cases? And what are the chances and risks that arise when applying AI to advance SDGs?
