The UN’s 39-member advisory council will address concerns in the worldwide governance of AI and provide a preliminary report by the end of this year.
According to a report, the United Nations’ preliminary artificial intelligence (AI) study will prompt governments and the corporate sector to consider governance, dangers, and potential.
The United Nations established a 39-member advisory council last week to address concerns about the worldwide governance of AI. The body plans to provide a preliminary report by the end of this year and a final report next year.
“We need to examine the landscape of existing governance responses across borders and then see where the gaps are and how we can connect the governance responses together so that there are no gaps,” he said.
Gill, who was chosen as UN Secretary-General António Guterres’s tech envoy last year, is responsible for coordinating U.N. efforts on topics ranging from artificial intelligence to brain technologies.
Regulators and legislators are coping with quickly changing technologies.
The industrial countries of the Group of Seven (G7) have agreed on a code of conduct for corporations researching sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI). Europe is nearing agreement on new AI legislation, while US President Joe Biden released a new AI executive order on Monday.
This week, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will also convene the world’s first global AI safety forum.
The AI advisory body’s suggestions will be debated at a United Nations summit in September of next year.
Guterres had approved a proposal by some AI executives in June to establish a worldwide AI surveillance organization similar to the Worldwide Atomic Energy Agency.
The United Nations provides a forum for national governments to examine how standards are being applied and whether they need to be changed, according to Gill.
The AI body will conduct at least three in-person sessions and numerous virtual meetings, co-chaired by Spanish digital minister Carme Artigas and Alphabet’s James Manyika.
