Society, business, government, and regulators all recognise the benefits of transforming to a digital economy. Equally the speed of change means they are all trying to make sense of the technology involved, where it might be heading and what it could mean for the way we use its applications across diverse domains.

  • How is AI bringing benefits to economy and society?
  • What are key areas for consideration to minimise unintended consequences so that policy and regulation are supportive of long-term growth and ensure that the benefits of AI are distributed across society?

What are key considerations that regulators should bear in mind when formulating AI policy? This session examined promising approaches to AI governance, including collaboration and coordination to avoid a piecemeal approach which can have a chilling effect on innovation and delay bringing the advantages of digital to societies and economies. It examined the opportunities to collaborate with academia, civil society and industry as well as regulators. How best to introduce expertise into all branches and levels of policy making to enable good decision-making?
