AI at a Turning Point: How Can We Create Equitable AI Governance Futures?

Over the past year, the rapid proliferation of generative AI applications like ChatGPT has raised increasingly urgent questions about the multidimensional impacts of AI on present and future humanity. On November 1 and 2 the UK government will host an international AI Safety Summit, aiming ‘to make frontier AI safe, and to ensure nations and citizens globally can realise its benefits’. Achieving these ambitions has, however, so far proven challenging in a global AI innovation ecosystem that has often been shaped by prevailing power asymmetries, historical legacies of inequality, and widening digital divides.

In this one-day AI Fringe event, Queen Mary University of London in partnership with The Alan Turing Institute, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on AI, and Big Innovation Centre will broaden the conversation around the current turning point in safe and responsible AI:
How can people and communities, at both local and global levels, realise the benefits, and the immense potential, of AI given existing socioeconomic and political headwinds?

How can current constellations of geopolitics, digital infrastructure, and economic power be reordered to better serve the public interest and to accelerate AI for the social good?

In short, how can we create more equitable AI governance futures?

The focus of the day will be on advancing equity-driven perspectives on global AI governance, with an emphasis on unpacking the risks and benefits of “frontier AI” through multiple disciplinary and geographic lenses. Sessions will include panels on AI and Children’s Rights, Global Data Justice and Generative AI, and Inclusive International AI Governance and Model Evaluation. The event’s capstone session will launch the national public sector AI Ethics and Governance in Practice programme, a series of eight workbooks, mandated in the UK’s National AI Strategy, that will update the UK’s official Public Sector AI Ethics and Safety Guidance.

This event is co-presented by Queen Mary University of London, The Alan Turing Institute, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on AI, and Big Innovation Centre.

This event is being held at Queen Mary University of London’s Octagon and lunch will be provided for those who attend in person.
Please note, this event will be livestreamed as part of the AI Fringe. It will also be recorded and photographed.
