Education: Learner’s credentials can be shared with any entitywith trusted Blockchain network. By embedding AI on top of it,automated job matching / career advisory would be available,which supports Learner’s life long learning.Moocs,E-learning-Check learning Status-RecommendationBlockchain NetworkShared Information People CredentialsSchools Transcript,Diploma(high school, Learning HistoryColleges etc) Micro Degree-Admission Optimization Company Badges-Check learning StatusAI-Recommendation Job matching / Career AdvisoryGovernmentCheck Statistics of educationCompany-Recruitng optimization-BadgesLearners(students,adults)Best Learning experience, Job Matching

Challenges for AI: Due to its complexity, a lot of cases arestill on Poc phase. Involvement of key players i.e. publicsectors and enhancement of AI literacy is essential to moveforwardChallengesAI/IOT ArchitectureDashboard - ReportingText AnalysisRegular operationsAdvanced AnalyticsLogicSimpleCalcIdentification, Classification,Predictions, OptimizationCplexInputStructured DataLearningSPSSUnstructured Data Natural Languages ImagesInformation GovernanceOutputIrregularOperationsManual input Internet of ThingsSound,Motion,Heat etcNews,WebsVoice ofInternalExternalExcels SensorsCustomer System Data System Data1. Data Gathering:especially when itbecomes personalinformation(like medicalrecord), it is difficult toget shared without thehelp of public sector.2. AI literacy: AI requirescontinuous training ofcomputer, biz userneeds to know how trainAI as well as understandthe meaning of outputdata. Some people aretoo much expectations(AI replaces all work,etc)

Summary and Recommendations1. There are emerging technologies (Blockchain/AI/IOT) having high potential to achieve SDGs2. However, each tech is being verified one by one,not unleashing the full potential with integration3. Moving forward, choose specific SDG (i.e.Education) and form cross-vertical team fromeach tech layer to accelarate achieving SDG goal4.
