In 2020, the Boston Global Forum (BGF), under the leadership of Governor Michael Dukakis, launched concepts for an Age of Global Enlightenment based on AIWS (Artificial Intelligence World Society) and the United Nations Centennial Initiative. This launch marked the beginning of a new age in which technology and innovation will play a crucial role in shaping our future. One of the pillars is AIWS City, which has been designed to be a model for the Age of Global Enlightenment.
One of the key components of AIWS City is the usage of AI Assistants, such as ChatGPT, to support and enhance the daily activities of its residents. ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is an advanced language model trained on a massive amount of data to perform a wide range of tasks, from answering questions to generating creative writing. In AIWS City, ChatGPT is used as an AI Assistant to help citizens access information, automate tedious tasks, and provide valuable insights in real-time.
The integration of ChatGPT into AIWS City demonstrates the potential of AI to revolutionize our daily lives, improving efficiency and enabling new ways of learning and innovating. It also highlights the importance of responsible AI governance and ethical considerations, ensuring that AI is developed and deployed for the benefit of all.
AIWS City and the use of AI Assistants like ChatGPT are a testament to the Boston Global Forum’s commitment to creating a responsible and innovative future for AI, and the role that AI can play in building the Age of Global Enlightenment. Through this initiative, the BGF is demonstrating how AI can be leveraged to create a better future for all, and inspiring others to join in this effort.

Boston Global Forum, Boston, February 6, 2023
The Boston Global Forum (BGF) and the Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG) are dedicated to proactively addressing the risks and challenges posed by AI in our daily lives. As leading organizations in technology and academia based in Boston, Massachusetts, we understand the significance of shaping the responsible growth and implementation of AI, including AI Assistants like ChatGPT.
Building on the 7-layer model of AIWS and Social Contract for the AI Age proposed by BGF in the AIWS – G7 Summit Initiative of 2019, we are now collaborating closely with AI Assistants to manage and minimize their potential risks. Through our collaboration with the United Nations Centennial Initiative and the launch concepts of the Age of Global Enlightenment in 2020, we aim to utilize our resources to create responsible AI policies and regulations through the AI International Accord. BGF and GADG are determined to play a key role in shaping a responsible and equitable future for AI.
GADG will organize a series of high-level dialogues about ChatGPT and AI Assistants and will engage with governments of the US, Europe, Japan, India, South Korea, Canada, Australia, and the United Nations Global Digital Compact. We will encourage AIWS city innovators to contribute to and practice GADG’s recommendations. BGF will also contribute to the upcoming Summit of the Future of the United Nations scheduled for September 2024.
The book “AI in the Age of Global Enlightenment” is a captivating story that delves into the integration of artificial intelligence into our society. The fast pace of technological advancements and the increasing impact of AI on our daily lives make it imperative to contemplate the ethical and societal ramifications of this evolving field.
The author, Michelle Nguyen, draws on ideas and concepts from the book “Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment,” edited by Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of the Boston Global Forum (BGF) and published by BGF and United Nations Academic Impact in July 2021. The key character in the book is AI Xachari, a robot with the capability to self-learn, feel, and act like humans while yearning to experience human happiness. With a goal to serve humankind’s happiness, AI Xachari meets the scientist who created the flawed AI, Balaam. The two discuss the Social Contract for the AI Age, aimed at ensuring the transparency of AI algorithms and holding AI creators accountable for their systemic impact. The scientist then upgrades Balaam, incorporating the Cyber Security Mesh Architecture and other advanced technologies, turning it into a cybersecurity expert for the AI Government.
This book offers a thought-provoking and imaginative portrayal of the relationship between AI and society, proposing a future where both can coexist in harmony and balance. Through AI Xachari and the scientist, the book demonstrates how we can utilize advanced technologies to create a better world, guided by principles of transparency, accountability, and the ethics outlined in the Social Contract for the AI Age.
The book launch event on February 25, 2023, featuring Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan as the keynote speaker, is eagerly awaited. It provides readers with an opportunity to gain deeper insights into the book’s themes and engage in a dialogue about the future of AI and its role in fostering the Age of Global Enlightenment.
AIWS City has recently recognized ChatGPT as one of significant impactful advancements in the History of AI 2022. The recognition took place at the History of AI House, a museum dedicated to preserving the legacy of AI and showcasing its evolution over time.
ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is a state-of-the-art language model that has been trained on a vast amount of text data. Its ability to generate human-like responses and carry out natural language processing tasks has made it a popular tool among researchers, businesses, and individuals alike.
The museum’s recognition of ChatGPT highlights its significance in the field of AI and its impact on the way we interact with technology. The model’s ability to understand and generate human-like responses has revolutionized the field of natural language processing and has opened up new avenues for innovation.
In addition to its applications in conversational AI, ChatGPT has also been used in various other industries, including finance, healthcare, and education. The model has demonstrated its ability to handle complex tasks and has been integrated into a wide range of applications, from customer service chatbots to advanced language translation systems.
