#AIConf2023

This event has now taken place

As the development of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to build at speed, and in the wake of the rapid advances in generative AI, governments are racing to adopt national policies and develop global regulatory cooperation. While jurisdictions will necessarily develop differing approaches at varying speeds, international regulatory cohesion can lead to improved outcomes, particularly where there is close cooperation between policymakers, industry, civil society, and other stakeholders.

Several initiatives promoting international cooperation are underway: the OECD has been active for some time; the G7, G20, and United Nations have all adopted broad principles and new initiatives, such as the G7’s recent ‘Hiroshima AI process’ to regulate generative AI, have been launched. Cooperation between like-minded partners is also ramping up in various bilateral and multilateral forums, with the EU and the US notably working on voluntary codes of conduct and other mechanisms designed to avoid divergence and foster responsible, human-centric AI. Meanwhile, the EU is finalising the first comprehensive regulatory scheme for AI. The extent to which major players who are also looking at regulating the technology but do not share similar political and social values and see AI as an instrument of geopolitical competition will be included in these discussions will shape the scope and potential for global AI governance.

The governance of AI has emerged as one of the most pressing questions of our time. This conference, presented by Forum Europe and Euronews and curated by Cameron Kerry and Joshua Meltzer of The Brookings Institution and Andrea Renda of the Centre for European Policy Studies, founders of the Forum for Cooperation on Artificial Intelligence, sought  to address many of the questions around global regulatory cooperation, and what this would mean in practice.
