AI for Good - Strategies for Ethical and Sustainable AI Development 👏
Can AI actually be used for good?
It’s the number one question associated with AI.
(Well, after that whole ‘Will it take my job!?’ query.)
One of the biggest misconceptions around AI is the fear that it'll take over everything and only cause destruction.
But what can AI do to help us?
Mark Minevich, a UN advisor, Chief Digital AI Strategist, and Global Social Innovation Technology Executive & Chair President at Going Global Ventures Inc., joins us to discuss strategies for ethical and sustainable AI development.

We’re checking it out and seeing just how good it is.
🤷♂️ What’s Going On and Why It Matters:
AI’s not all bad robots taking our jobs.
Actually, artificial intelligence can actually help solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
While we normally tackle how Generative AI can help grow your company or career, today we zoomed out.
Today we were lucky to talk with Mark Minevich, whose accomplishments and involvement in the AI space are legit longer than this newsletter.
As a best-selling author, AI advocate, UN advisor, Co-Chair of AI for the Planet Alliance (and so much more), Mark brings an in-depth and well-rounded perspective on how to use AI for good.
Mark’s energy negated the need for much morning coffee. Or maybe we needed a bit more to jot down all the hot takes? ☕
A whole lot on using AI for good, the importance of governance in AI development, and balancing AI-lead job creation and AI-lead job displacement.
Government and private sector responsibility in providing digital education to everyone in urban cities
Providing safe, secure, trustworthy, and fair AI
Lack of digital capacity and the need for preparation for the new economy
Competition between countries like the US, European Union, and China for AI dominance
Significant increase in AI funding, with examples of equity funding and AI unicorns
Advocacy for capital to go into AI for good and social innovation
🦾How You Can Leverage:
Let’s get this one outta the way, y’all — today’s episode is nearly impossible to recap.
Mark has an extensive background and is helping shape the global conversation on using AI for good.
And while we covered a host of topics, here’s our favorite takeaways to work toward using AI for good.
1 – Sustainability > Efficiency ✅️
To be honest, we’re in this column all the time. One of the most rewarding aspects of AI is it can help us become better at our jobs, saving us money and time.
Efficiency has become the name of the game.
Not so fast, Mark said. If the majority of corporations are only focused on efficiencies, then that can place profit above all else. Instead, Mark suggested it’s important to focus on sustainability.
By shifting the focus from purely corporate efficiencies to sustainable solutions, we can create a positive impact on society and the planet as a whole.
2 – Smarter cities = better planet 🌎
Remember when we said we’d zoom out on this one? We weren’t joking y’all. Many of us experience AI at the keyboard level. Like… whoa! Check what this AI made.
3 – We can all use AI for good 💪
Sure, Mark probably has a little more sway than some of us when it comes to using AI for good.
Mark kept it simple — use AI daily and use it for good.
Try this: Stop simply reading or watching about Generative AI. Instead, start using it daily. Mark encouraged people to use Generative AI tools daily and put them to practice. Learn new skills so that you and your company stay relevant in an ever-changing world.
Mark mentioned that AI is 10% generative AI and 20% technology, with the remaining 70% focused on collaboration, culture, applications, and solutions. So, use AI so you can focus on that 70%.
