The United Nations (UN) has set forth 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to tackle wide range of global challenges by 2030 which includes climate change, poverty, eradication and beyond. We will explore how Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used to achieve of these goals for better future.


The UN World Innovation Day Hack 2023 is not just another hackathon; it's a unique opportunity to collaborate with encouraging individuals to creatively utilize their skills to generate new ideas and solutions for various critical areas. These include health and wellbeing, economic growth, decent work, and quality education.

These challenges can address crucial areas where innovation can make a significant impact.

In the "GPT4Good" challenge, participants will explore the potential of GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) models to address social, environmental, and humanitarian issues. The GPT is a cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology, has the power to generate human-like text, making it a valuable tool for various applications. From enhancing accessibility to fostering sustainable practices, participants will harness the power of GPT to create innovative solutions that contribute to the greater good.

The "Data4Good" challenge focuses on leveraging the power of data to drive positive change. With the proliferation of data in our digital age, there is a tremendous opportunity to extract insights and make informed decisions that benefit society. To address critical issues such as participants will work with diverse datasets, apply data analytics, visualization, and machine learning techniques to address critical issues. Participants will be encouraged to explore how data can be ethically collected, analyzed, and utilized to address pressing global issues.
