Advancing AI for Global Peace

According to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreements on Climate Change, peace and security indicate a collective effort to actualize cooperation on social, economic, political, cultural, and environmental issues. So far, it has been difficult for the world to design a structure of peace integrating our diverse nations. Hence, as to bring the international community to an intersection where all could agree and foster. Developing a system where the world could meet can be achieved with technology. Technology encompasses all nations as they need to fulfill their aspirations and even more by continuous use of machine learning systems and data analytics leading to sufficient artificial intelligence utilization. Based on this, increased awareness needs to be created to governmental and humanitarian organizations that enough data training and algorithms can make world peace a reality. As the world continues to advance into being data-driven and algorithmic inclusive, there will be a need for better data that will include the world's diverse communities, need for machine learning algorithms the will complement human limitations when in use. Social platforms will be used to encourage debate that will highlight similarities.

War and Famine

The United Nations records that about 44,000 people are currently displaced from their homes daily due to natural disasters, war, and famine globally, with South-Sudan, Syria, and Afghanistan being the most afflicted. The concern of the world governmental and humanitarian leaders is that if there are sophisticated predictions of impending ethnic, political and religious crisis, communities will be salvaged before they become full-scale. But if artificial intelligence technology is engaged, it will analyze complex patchwork of data from imminent conflict areas to predict where peacekeeping efforts will be used. The patterns generated from this will help them determine the next zone that will be struck by famine, identify warning signs on mass migration and handle natural disasters.

Smart Health

When the pacemaker is implanted in the human body, it sends electrical signals to the heart to continue beating. It has improved the quality of life for persons with an abnormal heartbeat and has incredibly increased life expectancy. But considering further advancement on the pacemaker, it should be made to monitor the entire body system in real-time and diagnose illnesses, tackle incurable conditions, and even proffer new types of treatment that can easily be downloaded an application on our phones. It can also be used to manage arthritis, diabetes, give better pain management, and boost bladder control if the device connects to a network of nerves in the whole part of our body.

Robots Voting

The difficulty faced by many voters all over the world during a democratic election can't be overemphasized; some feel lost while in the booth while others are indecisive and end up following the larger crowd, which they usually end up regretting, especially if the elected leader turns out in becoming what was not bargained for. In most cases, making an informed decision involves a lot of dedication to researching each candidate's profiles one after the other, comparing their achievements against one another. Most people lack such luxury of time. Advancing artificial intelligence will help use algorithms and data analytics to create a pattern indicating which candidate will best serve your purpose. This machine can predict the candidate's alleged actions and decisions about the nation's political and socio-economical space.

Intelligent Border Guards

With many imminent threats posed by terrorists, human traffickers, and smugglers, there is a lot of pressure on our border guards. It isn't easy to make the right decision on who to detain, deny or grant access, and these scenarios go on to slow down the process design for international border access. But with additional intelligence on the system for ease and yet highly efficient border crossings by passengers, illegal assess will be expunged. Also, this technology, if developed, will help notify dangerous travelers long before they board by learning and analyzing data. This system will give a numerical risk evaluation through a threat assessment system that will collect individual data from all government agencies and related sources.

Crime Fighting

Efforts are made globally to detect and prevent crime using artificial intelligence technology so that people can feel safe and co-exist peacefully. Public and private sectors are investing a lot of financial resources to detect gunshots using sensors installed in the city and connected to a cloud-based application, see clues by analyzing a photograph and giving a link to an alternate line of investigation, and quickly identify bombs using artificial intelligence robots. Furthermore, since crimes are a collection of patterns, artificial intelligence technology is used to monitor these patterns to prevent crime, predict crime locations, and even likely carry out the crime.

Conclusively, organizations and governments need to embark on a rapid campaign for data usage to improve machine learning and ease of algorithmic application. By this, global events will be easily monitored, and conflicts or disasters will receive a preemptive response before they escalate. And again, general human psychology will be inclined to creating public peace by default.
