We had the privilege of receiving Guest lecture by Dr. Ammar Younas, on the topic of "Harmonizing Technology with Nature: A Cross-Cultural Approach to AI and Environmental Sustainability" to master's students at our esteemed university. Green University stands as a beacon of excellence in environmental and economic studies, pioneering sustainable education initiatives in Uzbekistan and Central Asia.
During the lecture, we embarked on a journey exploring the intricate relationship between technology and nature, with a particular focus on the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to contribute positively to environmental sustainability. We delved into various cultural perspectives and innovative methodologies aimed at integrating AI technologies with natural processes, thereby fostering a harmonious coexistence between humanity and the environment.
One of the highlights of the lecture was the introduction of our latest collaborative endeavor – the AI Governance International Evaluation Index (AGILE Index). Developed in partnership with The Center for Long-term Artificial Intelligence (CLAI) and the International Research Center for AI Ethics and Governance at the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the AGILE Index represents a groundbreaking initiative to guide AI development towards ethical and sustainable pathways. Through comprehensive evaluation criteria, the AGILE Index aims to ensure that AI innovation is aligned with principles of ethics, accountability, and long-term sustainability.
As we continue our journey towards shaping a sustainable future, let us remain committed to leveraging technology responsibly and ethically for the betterment of our planet and future generations.
