Organisation: Forum on Information & Democracy
The Forum on Information and Democracy calls upon those working on artificial intelligence to share their recommendations and insights to regulate artificial intelligence and mitigate its implication on the information and communication space.
They launched their latest policy recommendation development process, on 28 September, led by a working group of 14 noted experts and co-chaired by Laura Schertel Mendes, Lawyer and Professor of Civil Law at the University of Brasilia and Jonathan Stray, Senior Scientist at the Berkeley Center for Human-Compatible AI. This team will seek broad input from around the world and deliver key policy recommendations to the 51 signatory states of the International Partnership for Information and Democracy and to other stakeholders.
The working group’s mandate is to develop policy recommendations to define guardrails for the development and deployment of AI systems, define accountability and liability regimes for the developers, deployers, users and subjects of AI systems and options for a democratic governance of AI.
They call upon researchers, experts and organizations from all over the world specialized in these issues to contribute. Contributions should detail proposals for regulation or self-regulation of AI systems and suggest technical solutions. Contributions can take the form of answers to our questionnaire or submissions by email. Contributions can address specific sub-topics or consist of already existing papers or opinion pieces.
