Global Governance on AI

AI has brought extremely beneficial innovations across industries such as self-driving cars, speech recognition softwares, spam filtering algorithms that increase the efficiency of systems and processes by a great degree. However, the field is largely unregulated and presses the need for a balance between the benefits and unintended adverse effects. This balance can be achieved through global governance on development of AI and the subsequent usage across the spectrum.

Following two factors contribute to global governance on AI

  • lack of regulations and absence of control/oversight systems
  • hindering of the checks and balances system

Utilising AI in Policy Making

Countries differentiate the uses of Al based on their needs – some countries prioritise Al in public policy, some countries prioritise Al and cybersecurity, some are more in favour of the legal field. This is based on the priorities and interests of a state as a whole.

The integration of AI to any of these fields is a challenge, since public policy remains a largely humandominated field. GPI will attempt to find answers to these challenges by linking the experts in these policy fields with Al specialists, to see how means can meet the ends.

Utilising AI in Policy Implementation and Governance

Two important dimensions of AI in public policy need to be considered when discussing the utilisation of Al in public policy implementation and governance: the question of adopting and getting used to the new technology; and the question of how public policy and AI are mutually exclusive, how public policy can inhibit the use of Al by the very essence of its, by being a “human” field.

Challenges linked to the implementation of Al will be addressed by the expertise and engagements offered by ADVISORY GROUP.
