ISTANBUL (TR) - In 2016, the United Nations (UN) launched a series of programs aimed at achieving 17 titles, including education, health, industry and climate, by 2030. Supporting technologies are of great importance in achieving sustainable development. Door Technology Founding Partner and the author of the book Artificial Intelligence for Sustainable Development, Ozan Demir said, “Development and technology have emerged as elements that feed each other throughout history. Artificial intelligence and development cannot be considered separate from sustainable plans since they are concepts that develop each other. Every field covered by development programs such as education, health, agriculture, technology, human resources, marketing and industry is developing further with artificial intelligence technologies and facilitating business processes. ”

“Many sectors will adapt to artificial intelligence with their development plans”

Stating that the 11th Development Plan covering the years of 2019-2023 is the first plan mentioned in artificial intelligence technologies compared to other development plans, Ozan Demir said, başar The success of the development plans to be announced as of 2024 depends on the success of the 11th Development Plan in artificial intelligence and robot technologies. will. ” Ozan Demir also said, plan The planning, development, and distribution of economic and social potential are linked to the implementation of changes in industry 4.0 and digital society 5.0. When this connection is achieved, the national technology move and qualified human targets in the 11th Development Plan will reach its aim in accordance with the digital age. Production, distribution, logistics, food, clothing, health, education and all sectors will be able to adapt to artificial intelligence technologies faster and increase their added value thanks to their development plans ”.

The use of artificial intelligence in the industry will trigger economic growth

Within the scope of sustainable development targets, the industrial sector is of great importance to employment and production. In 2030, the need for manpower is expected to decrease to a great extent with the introduction of machines with artificial intelligence. Stating that artificial intelligence technologies are widely used in the industries of developed countries, Ozan Demir said, 2011 Between 2011 and 2016, the use of artificial intelligence technologies in the USA increased by 40% on average in industrial sectors such as automotive and textile. In the same period, China increased by 267%. The proliferation of the use of artificial intelligence-supported production tools and robots in our country will increase productivity and thus economic growth.”

Artificial intelligence reduces costs in energy production

37.3% of electricity generation from coal in Turkey in 2018, natural gas 29.8%, 19.8% from hydraulic energy, wind, 6.6%, 2.6% from the sun,% 2.5 of them were obtained from geothermal energy and 1.4% from other sources. Stating that it is necessary to switch to renewable energy in order to ensure sustainability, Ozan Demir said, “For the future of our world, we need to turn towards renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and thermal. With artificial intelligence, costs in renewable energy production can be reduced. For example, artificial intelligence supported wind turbines in Europe to increase efficiency and power production by approximately 5% and reduce maintenance costs by 20%.”

Facilitates access to health services

With the use of artificial intelligence technologies in health, patients' access to services will increase and health expenditures will decrease. Ozan Demir said “In our country, 660 thousand children between the ages of 0-5 have obesity problems and 17 thousand women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. At this point, the contribution of artificial intelligence is undeniable. It can achieve higher successes with artificial intelligence in development plans.”
