With only ten years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, development practitioners need to rapidly innovate how they make decisions and solve problems. Such innovations can be enabled by new intelligences, born from emerging uses of technology. Using the new paradigm of intelligence — which includes data intelligence, artificial intelligence, collective intelligence, and embodied intelligence — this position paper provides practitioners an overview of the benefits and risks associated with various emerging uses of technologies, illustrated by examples from the field where possible. It recommends the creation of a decisionmaking framework to help practitioners determine whether to invest in emerging technologies and if such technologies can effectively support development objectives.
