How Artificial Intelligence Can Help Deliver Good Governance

AI Governance Day will welcome ministers and regulatory authorities from over 70 governments.

While artificial intelligence (AI) has several business and social applications, now it is being explored to deploy AI for good governance. In this direction, the AI for Good Global Summit 2024 will open in Geneva, Switzerland on 29 May.

The event will celebrate the UN’s first AI Governance Day to discuss how best to implement principled AI frameworks while ensuring that no country is left behind.

AI Governance Day will welcome ministers and regulatory authorities from over 70 governments—nearly half representing developing countries—as well as representatives of industry, academia, civil society and United Nations agencies.

The day is organized and hosted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the UN Agency for Digital Technologies, ahead of two days dedicated to exploring how new technology can support sustainable development.

“The world needs AI technologies that are safe, secure and that go beyond bias to benefit everybody,” said ITU Secretary-General Doreen Bogdan-Martin. “AI Governance Day will reinforce important international principles as AI advances, while also ensuring that all countries are represented so that we can move forward together.”

National and regional initiatives on AI regulatory frameworks have clarified essential principles of equitability, inclusivity, safety and security to ensure that the rapidly evolving technologies benefit all of humanity.

AI Governance Day will focus on globally inclusive implementation of frameworks based on these principles. The discussions will also explore the role of international technical standards and capacity development to provide effective, consistent AI governance worldwide within an environment of inclusion and trust.

The first half of AI Governance Day will feature high-level discussions on implementing AI regulatory frameworks, with participants sharing case studies and best practices from around the world. This will be followed by an afternoon open session.

The public afternoon sessions will feature presentations by representatives of government, industry, standards bodies and UN agencies on key tenets of AI governance and the progress of initiatives underway around the world.

Discussions will then address topics such as:

Governments’ AI dilemma: How to maximize rewards while minimizing risks?

Leveraging the UN system to advance global AI governance efforts.

The critical conversation on AI safety and risk.

To share or not to share? Open-source versus proprietary large language models.

Harmonizing high tech: The role of AI standards as an implementation tool.

Following AI Governance Day will be ITU’s annual AI for Good Global Summit 2024, taking place 30-31 May, co-convened by the Government of Switzerland and organized with 40 partner UN agencies.
