A Challenge to Global Governance

September 25, 2018

The article summarizes key questions, considerations and approaches in the global governance of AI. Between late 2017 and early 2018, The Future Society launched a Global Civic Debate on Governing the Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that included 2000 participants and 20 events around the world. This article highlights the main points that emerged from this discussion, looks at current and future risks, and provides a roadmap articulating a decision system that will ensure the impact of AI is positive.

The article appears in Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) 2018 INTAL journal ‘Planet Algorithm: Artificial Intelligence for a Predictive and Inclusive form of Integration in Latin America.’
