In February 2018, in the context of the World Government Summit, the UAE hosted the inaugural Global Governance of AI Roundtable. Attended by more than 90 leading experts, scientists, and practitioners, the forum began the necessary dialogue on the pathways to the development of effective, yet culturally adaptable, norms that will assure the safe deployment of AI for the betterment of humanity. This report offers a summary of the insights gleaned from the Roundtable, the most salient among which are: 1) The need for continuity in the inclusive, deliberate, and systematic collective intelligence exercise that began at the first Roundtable. 2) The development of a multilayered AI governance framework, with international legitimacy and broad applicability in advancing the well being of all human societies.
