AI + SDG Launchpad

Designing curriculum to tackle global challenges.

The AI+SDG Launchpad allows any school, college, university, or research institute to easily create and manage a curriculum that bridges the gap between Data Enabled Sciences and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030.

The Launchpad serves as a blueprint for single or multi-semester courses that allow students to engage with global challenges they are passionate about in a structured way.

The AI for Good Foundation provides mentoring connections to NGOs, government, policy groups, and social benefit corporations, along with data, background research, and a proven course structure that delivers measurable and repeatable exposure to using AI for social good in a collaborative setting.

Our programs have reached more than 500 students in five countries, with collaboration on a range of SDG topics, from carbon sequestration and curtailing media bias, to ocean health and predicting refugee migration.

AI + SDG Launchpad Curriculum

A project-based course that allows students to take on real-world problems using Artificial Intelligence with a specific focus on achieving the 17 SDGs.

With a dynamic course structure that includes guest lectures, group discussions, student-led lectures, and hands-on activities, students will explore project management, sociological research methodology, building end-to-end machine learning pipelines, feature engineering, evaluating machine learning models, impact evaluation, and data ethics.

Students will use state-of-the-art data science models to perform original research, where they tackle a specific SDG challenge from both a policy-oriented sociological perspective as well as a data-driven mathematical approach.
