GPAI Data Governance Working Group’s first projects
Jenni Tenison (Open Data Institute), who, together with dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, co-chairs the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) Data Governance Working Group, has published on Organisation for economic cooperation and development (OECD) AI-dedicated webpage a blog, describing the GPAI formation, its goals and the first projects of its Data Governance Working Group. You are welcome to read the blog!
In her blog post, Jenni Tenison provides details on the first projects of the GPAI Working Group, the first being agreeing a data governance framework, setting a unified scope, structure and vocabulary for the Working Group’s future work. This will be produced by the Working Group itself.
The second project concerns an investigation on The Role of Data in AI, its purpose being to identify areas where access to more data can prove to be useful, as well as the areas where collection or access to data could lead to harm. In order to complete its second project, the Working Group is searching for experts from this field to assist in this project as partners. A public competitive tender with a proposal submission deadline on the 6 September 2020 is available here.
We will keep you updated on the GPAI Data Governance Working Group further activities.
