Round Table - 90 Min
Built around a shared commitment to the OECD Recommendation on Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) is an international and multi-stakeholder initiative to guide the responsible development and use of AI, grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, and economic growth. GPAI’s unique structure allows over 100 independent experts that take up applied AI research & projects based on the strategic guidance provided by member countries. This round table discussion will provide the perspective of GPAI Experts, the current and incoming council chairs, and the secretariat on how the GPAI is best positioned to address the contemporary advancements in Artificial Intelligence and its challenges. It will also provide the perspective of two leading Asian economies on how their domestic interventions are harnessing the potential of AI for social good and addressing its challenges. The discussion will start with Ms. Inma providing an overview of how GPAI’s work around data governance, future of work, innovation and commercialisation, and responsible AI is helping catalyse responsible AI innovation. As the chair of the multi-stakeholder experts group plenary of GPAI, Ms. Inma will also provide insights into GPAI’s future for ensuring recent AI advances are leveraged for the collective good. The discussion will then shift to Mr Yoichi to shed light on how GPAI has evolved during Japan’s presidency and the role GPAI played in shaping Japan’s domestic AI initiatives and the AI related outputs of their G7 presidency. Finally, Ms. Bhatia, will shed light on India’s vision for GPAI during its presidency in 2024 and how the partnership can be made more inclusive and its outputs more relevant for the Global South. Ms. Bhatia will also elaborate on India’s domestic AIForAll approach and how India is democratising AI and ensuring its use for large-scale socio-economic transformation. The session will be a round table discussion with a moderator. The discussion will be conducted onsite with the help of an online moderator to accommodate the online audiences to also be engaged. The discussion will last around 75 minutes and the remaining 15 minutes will be used to invite the audience online and, in the auditorium, to ask questions about the topic.
