This occasion offers GPAI experts and Member governments the opportunity to showcase recent developments from GPAI working groups in order to discuss how their collective efforts can be best harnessed to advance the responsible development and utilization of this technology. Aiming to engage external partnerships as well, this public-facing event will include reporting on the ten Working Groups’ study topics, from the 2021 Work Plan, as well as additional reflection sessions.
One of the working groups, which will present its work is also the Data Governance Working Group (DG WG), whose co-chairs are dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M. and Jeni Tenison, Ph. D., OBE, and which aims to collate evidence, shape research, undertake applied AI projects and provide expertise on data governance, to promote data for AI being collected, used, shared, archived and deleted in ways that are consistent with human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, economic growth, and societal benefit, while seeking to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
