Introducing the 18th Sustainable Development Goal
As advances in artificial intelligence, robotics and biotechnology play an increasingly crucial role in human lives, politics, and economy, the 18th Sustainable Development Goal has been proposed in order to complement the existing 17 SDGs.
Life with Artificials has been identified to address the various challenges that arise as a result of next-generation technologies' growing presence and entanglement in our everyday lives.
"If we promote sustainable tech development with acts of ethics, we can unlock enormous potential for reaching the other 17 Global Goals."
Everybody can help make sure we meet the 18th Global Goal. Use these targets to create action to empower people to live sustainable lives with artificials.
PROMOTE HUMAN-CENTRED ARTIFICIALS
Promote the development of Artificials for the common good of humanity, with a respect for human rights, diversity, and the autonomy of individuals, along with their implementation as a means of human empowerment.
ENSURE ETHICAL USE OF ARTIFICIALS
Ensure that all nations, companies, developers, and researchers commit to fostering the highest possible standards of practice working with Artificials and consider the ethical implications of their work.
ENHANCE AWARENESS OF ARTIFICIALS
By 2025, ensure Artificials are easily identifiable when in situations that have a significant impact on human lives.
STRENGTHEN THE SHARING OF KNOWLEDGE
Ensure that advances made in next-generation technologies are publicly accessible, fostering their inclusive and decentralized development.
SECURE RIGHTS TO DATA PRIVACY
Ensure that data acquired from Artificials is protected as to prevent its use in unfair discrimination against individuals, communities, or groups.
ENSURE TRANSPARENCY IN ARTIFICIALS
Adopt measures to ensure Artificials are transparent; ensuring it is always possible to discover how and why Artificials make decisions or operate the way they do.
SUPPORT THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE OTHER SDGs
Implement Artificials to make the 17 other SDG more achievable.
ESTABLISH A CODE OF CONDUCT FOR ARTIFICIALS
By 2025, implement both a legal Code of Conduct for Artificials and an oath of ethics for developers, similar to the Hippocratic Oath.
MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER ARTIFICIALS
Ensure individuals and organizations are held legally accountable for their Artificials and any repercussions that arise as a result of their creation.
SECURE A STABLE ENTANGLEMENT BETWEEN HUMANS AND ARTIFICIALS
Significantly enhance education about Artificials to ensure the mental, emotional, and economic stability of all humans as our lives become increasingly entangled with next-generation technologies.

A long way to go before Google puts out this fire🔥 but will be interesting to see what Croak does with her new position overseeing those working on accessibility, AI for social good, algorithmic fairness in health, brain fairness, ethical AI and others.
