AI Commons Workshop at the Global Forum on AI for Humanity
October 28, 2019
We will host a workshop on the AI Commons as part of the Global Forum On AI for Humanity. This forum is chaired by French President Emmanuel Macron as part of France’s G7 presidency and will serve as a precursor to the International Panel on AI. As a founding member of the AI Commons Initiative, The Future Society will organize a workshop to take stock of the implementation of the AI Commons and outline next steps. The AI Commons is a new institutional ecosystem to develop and manage a pool of common resources crucial for AI, such as computing power, data, governance mechanisms and capabilities to foster talent and innovation. This ecosystem enables AI development by countries that would otherwise have to depend on foreign stakeholders.
