Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) is an international initiative to ensure responsible use and development of AI, grounded in human rights, diversity, innovations and economic growth.
GPAI, which will have its Secretariat based at OECD in Paris, seeks to bring together top-class experts and support research and projects related to the following subject matters:
– resposible AI;
– data governance;
– the future of work;
– inovation and commercialisation;
– use of AI to tackle COVID-19.
The founding members of the GPAI, alongside Slovenia, are: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the European Union. They have all issued a Joint GPAI Statement, committing to support the responsible and human-centric development and use of AI in a manner consistent with human rights and fundamental freedoms.
Nine Slovenian experts will be part of GPAI working groups, one of them being dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič!
