Who we are?
The Transnational Working Group on Artificial Intelligence and Disruptive Technologies (TWG on AI) brings together experts on global governance and artificial intelligence from around the world, including Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, to discuss effective global governance of AI and other disruptive digital technologies, capable of managing both the risks and opportunities associated with these technologies.
What we do?
WFM/IGP seeks to establish legal and political authority in world institutions to deal with problems which can only be treated adequately at the global level, while affirming the sovereignty of the nation-states in matters which are essentially internal.
The mission of the TWG on AI is to help to bring about:
Effective global governance of AI and other disruptive digital technologies, capable of managing both the risks and opportunities associated with these technologies.
Global Digital Compact and the AI Governance
The TWG on AI believes that there is an urgent need to establish effective global governance of AI. The Office of the Envoy on Technology has invited submissions regarding the Global Digital Compact and including the theme: Promote regulation of artificial intelligence.
The TWG will be organising a number of events between June and September discussing AI governance and regulation and preparing proposals for the Global Digital Compact.
What we have done
The TWG carried out an initial mapping exercise exercise that lead to a plan to initially monitor and then later engage with the evolving AI governance scene. An initial paper Effective, Timely and Global – Urgent Need for Good Global
Governance of AI was followed by a paper by the TWG Chair AI Global Governance – What are we Aiming For.
The TWG has also organised a series of external speakers including Nell Watson, Jamie Metzl, Matthias Spielkamp, Lord Tim Clement Jones, Anders Spielberg, Wendell Wallach, Eva Kaili, Paul Nemitz, Manish Tewari and Edson Prestes where they have expressed their views on AI Global Governance from their particular perspective.
