Over the past decade, technology and interactive systems are becoming an integral part of our society. Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming intertwined in our daily life and progressively having a wider impact on many sectors. It is necessary to assess innovation’s effect on the achievement of the sustainable development goals.
Although sustainable goals are often not directly considered the main objective when developing and creating new AI models and computer interaction interfaces, many applications of these technologies, such as in healthcare, smart cities, education and welfare, will have a powerful and direct impact on people’s lives and could play a crucial role as catalysts in developing a sustainable society.
This Special Issue generally aims to i) synthesize how AI might change (and is already changing) our society, ii) serve as a display of the potential of intelligent and interactive technologies for ensuring a thriving and sustainable society, as well as iii) provide a synopsis of the developments needed in order to leverage this sustainable technological revolution on a global scale.
