Sustainable Development Goals
Recursive's core mission is to help solve the SDGs. Find out why.
SDGs
The UN has proposed a set of goals for the next 10 years that fit the vision of sustained economic growth coupled with ecological and societal protection. There are 17 goals, called the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and they cover a variety of issues such as reducing poverty, improving healthcare, education and gender equality; while at the same time protecting our earth's natural environment.

A 2020 study published in the scientific journal Nature Communications has found that AI technologies have the potential for strong positive impact in almost all of the 17 sustainable development goals. We have identified four key areas where AI can provide a generational leap in efficiency that will transform how businesses run as well as positively impact the SDG goals.

We believe that Japan has a lot of room to improve in terms of its impact on SDGs. Through collaboration with Japanese companies and members of society, we aim to help improve Japan's impact on the SDGs with innovative technology.

Performance analysis and setting goals
For a successful collaboration, it is essential to define the problem correctly. We help our partners quantitatively measure their impact, and apply design thinking ideas to set relevant goals to your organization.
Technological solution development
With years of experience working for the world's top AI research labs, our team keeps up with the latest developments in AI. We believe in developing simple solutions to complex problems.
After the development stage, we help our partners deploy their solution with minimal disruption. Constant monitoring enables us to proactively detect any potential bias or misuse of the technology.
