Ensuring equitable outcomes requires active engagement with the ICT sector. In December, 2018, APRU initiated a partnership with Google on the exploration of artificial intelligence policy issues. The project will see the production of two policy research projects. The first focuses on the social implications of artificial intelligence and the future of work, the second project seeks to understand how society can maximize artificial intelligence’s potential for an equitable future.
Collaborators from the APRU network began working on the first project, AI for Everyone: Benefitting From and Building Trust in the Technology, holding the first workshop on artificial intelligence accessibility and governance on December 1, 2017, at Keio University, Tokyo; co-chaired by artificial intelligence experts Professors Jiro Kokuryo (Keio)and Toby Walsh (UNSW Sydney). The project will deliver a series of working papers, resulting in policy recommendations to be published and widely disseminated to governments and civil society.
AI for everyone: benefitting from and building trust in the technology
- Increase access to the benefits of artificial intelligence.
- Build awareness about the nature of the technology.
- Disseminate key findings feeding into policy discourse and dialogue.
