Dialog with Turing and Minsky at the History of AI House

If you have questions about Turing and Minsky life and AI they will respond: a special AI program prepared by Querlo and the History of AI House at AIWS City makes this possible, even though they died!

MICHELANGELO AI is an educational tool available to all who want to know something about the art, life, and thought of the greatest Renaissance artist.

For Francesco Rulli, CEO of Querlo LLC: “This is a dream come true. Exploiting the potential of personalized Artificial Intelligence, we have been able to capture Michelangelo’s ‘spirit’, offering everyone the chance to interact personally with this master artist of the Renaissance and to know and contribute to the Florence Cathedral Foundation’s work in restoring and preserving its heritage.

Francesco Rulli discussed applying this technology in AIWS History of AI House and AIWS University. AIWS City and Querlo will collaborate to develop applications based on Querlo for education and innovation.

Michael Dukakis and Nguyen Anh Tuan gave distinguished AIWS Leadership Lecture

On April 15, 2021, Governor Michael Dukakis and Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, co-founders of AI World Society, gave a distinguished lecture to students of AIWS Leadership Master Program at Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University ETU”LETI”.

Governor Dukakis shared his politics and leadership life and encourage young leaders to contribute toward world peace and security and to listen each other. He answered questions from students, including those about the relationship between USA and Russia.

Nguyen Anh Tuan spoke about “Becoming a global charismatic leader in the and Digital and AI Age”, his keynotes:

  • A leader needs a doctrine, which can bring equality of opportunities to every citizen in the world; there need to make the world smarter, quicker, more effective, and more humane.
  • In the Digital and AI Age, AIWS can become a doctrine for this, contributing toward the United Nations Centennial initiative, remaking the world – the Age of Global Enlightenment.

Mr. Nguyen encourages students to become leader in the AI and Digital Age; one does not need to become a prime ministers or billionaires, but rather good ethics, morals, honesty, sincerity, and innovative thinking.

 

“Disputed Territories and World Peace” – The 2nd Senkaku Islands Issue

“Disputed Territories and World Peace” will consist of a series of speeches and discussions by leading intellectuals from various fields of specialization. The second event will be held following the series on September last year. China’s revised Maritime Police Law, which violates international law, went into effect on February 1.

Chinese Maritime Police vessels have long harassed and surprisingly recently driven away Japanese fishing boats operating peacefully in Japan’s waters and now they are armed and permitted to use force. With recent situations where freedom and democracy are challenged, it is important that democratic countries unite and commit to global security and peace.

Building the Framework for an AI International Accord: The EU is considering a ban on AI for mass surveillance and social credit scores

The Boston Global Forum building the framework for an AI International Accord. On April 28, the AI International Accord Panel with the attendance of Ambassador Stavros Lambrinidis; Gabriela Ramos, the Assistant Director-General for the Social and Human Sciences of UNESCO; and Governor Michael Dukakis, Co-founder and Chairman of the Boston Global Forum.

The EU is considering a partial AI ban that will be formally announced April 21.

The proposed ban is the first of its kind

Europe’s legislative body will likely focus on “high risk” AI systems and could fine companies up to €20m or 4% of revenue if they don’t comply.

“High risk” refers to things like mass surveillance and social credit scores that can impact safety and privacy. AI for things like manufacturing and energy would likely be good to go.

The regulations include:

  • A surveillance banson AI systems that track people indiscriminately
  • A ban on social credit scores that track individual behaviors, impact hiring and judiciary decisions, and rate trustworthiness
  • Bias prevention measures like human oversight in testing datasets
  • AI notifications that would be sent to people when interacting with AI systems

The catch: Experts say the rules are vague and leave room for loopholes.

The rules also come as AI investment in the US is hotter than ever:

  • The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence recently called for $32Bin annual nonmilitary federal spending on AI research
  • Already in 2021, 442 US VC deals with AI startups were wortha combined $11.65B

US companies could likely be subject to the EU’s new rules. Though the draft could change come April 21, we have a feeling few companies will be big fans.

Towards an AI International Accord: Greater EU-US Alignment needed for innovation, says EU Ambassador to US

2021 has marked a renewal of the transatlantic relationship, with greater collaboration and alignment called on by both sides of the Atlantic on digital trade, artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity. EU Ambassador to the US Stavros Lambrinidis made it clear that Europe’s leadership in digital needs to build on international cooperation.

A transatlantic partnership, he stressed, is how Europe can level the playing field, by incentivising domestic innovation, and advancing markets vis-à-vis competitors.

“Europe wants to be a player in digital, and to run as fast as anyone else. This is only possible with extremely close EU-US cooperation.”

Governor Michael Dukakis will present the AIWS Leadership Master Lecture for Saint Petersburg students

On April 15, 2021, Governor Michael Dukakis, co-founder and Chairman of the Boston Global Forum, co-founder of AI World Society (AIWS), will present the lecture “How to become a charismatic leader in the AI Age.” This lecture is a part of the AIWS Leadership Master Program at Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University (ETU ”LETI”).

Together with Governor Michael Dukakis, Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of the Boston Global Forum, co-founder of AIWS, will highlight to students visions of AIWS and how to inspire global citizens and leaders to contribute and support the Social Contract for the AI Age, AI International Accord.

Social Contract for the AI Age as “TCP/IP” to connect governments. World Leadership Alliance-Club de Madrid launched the report and press release call leaders, governments endorse and apply this Social Contract. This is the first Social Contract in the age of AI, Internet, and Digital. The framework for AI International Accord (AIIA) is a follow-up of the Social Contract for the AI Age. The framework is designed to build the AI World Society (AIWS) and to meet the goals of the United Nations Centennial Initiative — as articulated by the United Nations Academic Impact and the Boston Global Forum.

Professor Nazli Choucri will present the Framework for AI International Accord on April 28

The United Nations Academic Impact, Boston Global Forum, and Michael Dukakis Institute will
organize the UN Centennial Roundtable “AI International Accord” on April 28. This roundtable will address:

1. Fundamentals of the framework for AI International Accord,
2. Processs to build AIIA
3. Mechanisms to implement AIIA, and
4. Supports of governments, international organizations, and companies and firms to acknowledge, buttress, and enable this international accord.

Professor Nazli Choucri, MIT, Member of AIWS City’s Board of Leaders, will present the Framework for AI International Accord v1.0 at the UN Centennial Roundtable.

In 2018, Governor Michael Dukakis called for an international accord for AI and, over the last several years, there has been steady progress toward this goal. The Boston Global Forum put forward the Social Contract for the AI Age and AI World Society initiative.

On December 12, 2020, at the Boston Global Forum and Michael Dukakis Institute Ceremony to honor EU Commission President von der Leyen as World Leader for Peace and Security Award, and introduce the AI International Accord Initiative, she called for an EU-US Transatlantic Accord on AI. She emphasized “global standards aligned with our values: Human rights, and pluralism, inclusion and the protection of privacy.” Then at the Munich Security Conference in February, President Biden called for AI rules that “lift people up.” It was a powerful statement.

 

Technology: A Path Towards A More Collaborative World Order?

AIWS introduces the article by Shatrughna Sinha Deputy, Consul General of India, New York, on the Fletcher Forum of World Affairs to discuss. Below are some key messages of his article:

 

As countries look towards developing new frameworks of cooperation in global digital governance, there are also some apprehensions. A genuine fear about AI is that capital-rich countries will benefit more, and labor-rich countries will suffer as jobs shift towards automation. It is true that developed countries have an advantage, as innovation tends to benefit countries that have an abundance of intellectual capital. Some of the biggest companies in the world today either operate on digital platforms or deal in digital technologies. While the innovators and investors have made huge profits and those with high skills have benefitted, there is a crisis at the lower-skill end of the spectrum. Until the time when low-skilled labor in advanced countries shifts to higher skills required in the new world technology industry, wages are likely to stagnate. This is likely to amplify inequities in developed societies as well.

…..

CAN INDO-U.S. TECHNOLOGY COLLABORATION EMERGE AS A MODEL FOR THE WORLD?

Technology cooperation between India and the United States could be a great example of how countries from the Global South can collaborate with advanced countries in the development of data-driven technologies. Both countries have worked closely on multilateral platforms on confidence building measures, capacity building, and norm-setting in cyberspace. India and the United States signed a Cyber Framework in August 2016 and have since had multiple consultations on digital technologies and cyberspace.17This framework of cooperation has led to cooperation in the fields of law enforcement, capacity building, computer emergency response cooperation as well as cooperation in the field of testing and standards. Both countries have also worked closely on multilateral platforms on norms of state behavior and confidence building measures in the cyber sphere.18 The complementarities between the two countries are obvious. While the United States is the most advanced cyber power, India is the largest digital democracy in the world. The technology industry in the United States is powered by the talent and hard work of Indian engineers.

At the same time, India’s IT services industry is reliant on U.S. clients. The booming digital platform economy in India has attracted significant investments from American behemoths like Walmart and Facebook. The strong base for this cyber-cooperation is provided by the shared values of freedom and democracy.

As an answer to the question “What is the American Way?”, he said, with solid foundation and fundamental matters, the US should lead in “Remaking the world – the Second Age of Enlightenment” as mission of AI World Society.

Mr. Tuan also said the US should do 3 things to compete with China: be quicker, smarter, and more effective in politics, economy, business, and society.
