Espoo, Finland -- The Advisory Panel of UNTIL Finland recently gathered at the organization's new office in the A-Grid building of Aalto University to review plans and chart a course forward. The meeting was co-chaired by Ms. Atefeh Riazi, Chief Information Technology Officer of the United Nations, along with Mr. Jarmo Sareva, Ambassador for Innovation for Finland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"The advances of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, including those brought on by a combination of computing power, robotics, big data and artificial intelligence, are generating revolutions in health care, transport and manufacturing.
I am convinced that these new capacities can help us to lift millions of people out of poverty, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and enable developing countries to leap‑frog into a better future."
