Embedded in the digital revolution, AI will play a factor in determining our societies for decades to come, accentuating and accelerating the dynamics of an old cycle in which technology and power reinforce one another. While AI has the potential to dramatically improve lives and make remarkable progress towards achievement of the SDGs, the socio-economic opportunities are inextricably connected with serious risks to the OECD AI Principles. Comprehensive national AI policies, AI ethical guidelines, and practical implementation plans fit for local contexts can serve as powerful roadmaps to achieve development objectives. These require broad stakeholder and public input and include national AI talent development – including women and minorities. Policymakers and companies must align on the key concerns for diverse AI use cases and technologies. With cross-national deployment and impacts, international collaboration and coordination is also needed in valid institutions such as the GPAI, OECD, Global Governance of AI Forum.
