SDG 9 - Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Investment in infrastructure and innovation are crucial drivers of economic growth and development. With over half the world population now living in cities, mass transport and renewable energy are becoming ever more important, as are the growth of new industries and information and communication technologies.Technological progress is also key to finding lasting solutions to both economic and environmental challenges, such as providing new jobs and promoting energy efficiency. Promoting sustainable industries, and investing in scientific research and innovation, are all important ways to facilitate sustainable development.

More than 4 billion people still do not have access to the Internet, and 90 percent are from the developing world. Bridging this digital divide is crucial to ensure equal access to information and knowledge, as well as foster innovation and entrepreneurship.

Webinar on " The Role of artificial intelligence in achieving sustainable goals"

HHI also actively participated in fulfilling SDG 9. HHI held an informative webinar on 10th of November, 2020 in partnership with:-

  • Technology partner: Zafi Rabots.
  • Learning partner: GlobalshalaX

The Speakers of the webinar were:

  • Mohamed Aashik Rahman, Founder and CEO of Zafi Robots.
  • Tapan Parikh, Founder and Director of
  • Anushka Jain, Founder and CEO of Globalshala.

The webinar emphasised on the importance of Artificial Integillence. Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving.

We discussed how we can implement the Sustainable Development Goals by artificial intelligence. Mohammad Aashik Rahman, the founder & CEO of Zafi Robot, provided the first medical robots to rescue the battle against Covid-19 in India and also he is a member of HHI. So HHI and Zafi Robots together, we are trying to implement SDGs in the robots to achieve each and every goals with artificial intelligence in order to make the world a better place to live in.
