About the Silicon Valley Innovation Factory Contest

The Innovation Factory Contest is a global contest reviewing technologies and use cases that can make the world a better place in direct alignment with the UN SDGs. The Agenda 2030 and it's Sustainable Development Goals are a plan of action from the United Nations that set 17 global goals to achieve by 2030. The goals put forward the global challenges we face, including challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate, and justice.

This competition, in alignment with other regional contests, aims to raise awareness of the SDGs and promote AI technology’s alignment to the cause in the United States in general and Silicon Valley in particular.
