Presentation: Job Creation through Sustainable Investing Using Human-Centered AI: An Integral Approach

The COVID-19 pandemic has vividly demonstrated that humanity is not well prepared to address global grand challenges particularly existential threats. This presentation shows how to restart the economy and ensure employment using an integral approach to sustainable investing in early stage start-ups using human-centered AI. As stimulus packages are being made available, the need for fast-tracked, digitized and scalable investment decisions for implementing the UN SDGs within Planetary Boundaries becomes an obligation. Based on three decades of investment track record and four years of AI application data, this presentation shows how to identify the black swans of integral sustainability and how to significantly improve the de-risking processes through human-centered AI.
