On February 28th, 2023, the BGF High-level Dialogue on Regulation Framework for AI Assistants and ChatGPT took place online. The event was chaired by Governor Michael Dukakis, Chair of BGF, and Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of BGF, who co-moderated.
The keynote speaker was Vint Cert, a renowned computer scientist and one of the fathers of the Internet.
The keynote speech by Vint Cerf addresses the arrival of large-scale language models such as GPT-3 and the risks associated with the use of machine learning. Cerf notes that machine learning is a narrower kind of intelligence that uses multi-layer neural networks, which were previously discounted in the 1960s as inadequate. However, over the last decade or so, they have become extremely powerful in their functionality. Cerf points out that there are risks associated with the use of machine learning, and these risks can be categorized similarly to the risks associated with self-driving cars. Cerf suggests that low-risk applications of machine learning include making suggestions to users, while high-risk applications include medical diagnosis and automated surgery. Cerf notes that one of the challenges associated with machine learning is the inability to predict or anticipate how the system might go off the rails.

AIWS City has planned to contribute new values in AIWS – the Age of Global Enlightenment to several US national parks, including Grand Canyon, Zion, Capitol Reef, Yellowstone, and Acadia, an important link between the aspects of nature, respect for nature, and AI World Society (AIWS) – the Age of Global Enlightenment.
The natural world has always been a source of inspiration for human innovation, and as we enter a new era of technological advancement, it is increasingly important that we continue to draw upon the lessons and wisdom of nature in our pursuit of progress.
Respect for nature and the need to preserve the environment, create new social, cultural initiatives and stories between these parks and the AI of Global Enlightenment are fundamental to the success of this project. By leveraging the power of AI, blockchain, and other cutting-edge technologies to monitor and protect the natural environment, AIWS City is demonstrating a commitment to sustainability and responsible stewardship.
At the same time, the project is also designed to promote education and enlightenment. By using interactive exhibits and immersive experiences, visitors to these national parks will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world, and will be inspired to take actions to protect it, create new ideas, initiatives for the Age of Global Enlightenment.
In this way, the project by AIWS City represents an important link between the superpowers of nature, respect for nature, and the AI World Society (AIWS) – the Age of Global Enlightenment. By combining these forces, we can create a better world for ourselves and future generations.

Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of Boston Global Forum, the editor of the book “Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment”, and Ramu Damodaran, Co-chair of the United Nations Centennial Initiative, spoke at the launch of the book “AI in the Age of Global Enlightenment” on Feb. 25, 2023 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Here is Mr. Ramu Damodaran’s speech:
“As the United Nations marked its seventy fifth anniversary in 2020, it sought to repair and restore a world devastated over the past few months by the COVID-19 pandemic. At the Boston Global Forum, eyes were on another horizon, 2045, when the world organization would mark its centennial, and the opportunity that would give to go beyond the restoration and repair circumstances had made necessary 25 years earlier, to go beyond those to a “remaking” of the world, a remaking that would celebrate a new age of Global Enlightenment. In the words of Boston Global Forum Chief Executive Officer, Nguyen Tuan Anh, that remaking would “require concerted action by governments, individuals, organizations and firms; each must be a source of innovation.”
I am glad that Tuan mentioned individuals particularly since we all to often tend to blend or subsume them into entities of which they are a part through birth, education and profession. The United Nations Charter celebrates the dignity and worth of the human person, a worth we see manifest each day in the extraordinary range of creativity that the minds and hearts of women and men the world over yield.
Michelle Nguyen is one such human person. She has drawn from the scholarship in the Boston Global Forum’s publication on Global Enlightenment the seeds of a story her mind has planted, allowed to take root, and flower. A story I won’t go into detail, for fear of giving its plot away, but a story that centers around a scientist who creates an Artificial Intelligence assistant and a robot with the capability, in her words, to “self learn, feel and act like a human while yearning to experience human happiness.”
What a moving phrase. That to feel and act as a human —as each one of us do—is not an assurance that we will experience the happiness that should come with the sheer exhilaration of being human. There are many reasons for this lack of assurance but at least one is each one of us being overwhelmed by the everyday tasks for survival which inhibit our capacity, as a species, to truly flourish.
The creation of an Artificial Intelligence World Society, governed by an Artificial Intelligence Social Contract, for both of which the Boston Global Forum has made so compelling a case, can help fulfill many of these tasks, liberating our time, our minds and our hearts to flourish and be humanly happy. Michelle references that possibility with gentleness and care in her book, personifying the many pitfalls of AI, of which most of us are aware, with its immense potential to enhance good, vindicating the idea that what human beings create, they can transform.
In the words of Governor Michael Dukakis, Chairman of the Boston Global Forum “there are too many judgments you have to make in this world that involve values, ethics and morality.” These are judgments for humans to make, and they can be best made when humans are happy and fulfilled. Michelle’s thoughtful, but easy, novel shows us a gentle way.”

Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of the Boston Global Forum, will speak at the International Scientific Conference Preventing and Handling Online Fake News – Theory and Practice, chaired by Vietnam Ministry of Public Security’s Theorical Council, March 2, 2023, in Vietnam.
He will present the topic Ethics Code of Conduct for Cyber Peace and Security and Combating Disinformation in the Age of Global Enlightenment.
Disinformation and misinformation are major challenges facing society today, and solving them is essential to building a trusted information society based on accurate and reliable information. Disinformation and misinformation can have serious consequences, including spreading false ideas, undermining public trust in institutions and experts, and even influencing elections and other important decisions.
AIWS – the Age of Global Enlightenment, is a vision for a future in which humanity uses science and technology to create a better world for all. In this vision, disinformation and misinformation are seen as serious obstacles to progress that need to be addressed.
Solving these issues will require a multi-disciplinary approach that brings together experts from the fields of technology, media, education, and policy. This will involve developing better algorithms and tools for detecting and removing false information, educating people about how to identify credible sources and recognize false information, and strengthening institutions that promote accurate and reliable information.
Ultimately, the goal of combating disinformation and misinformation is to build a society that is based on truth, trust, and mutual understanding. By working together to solve these issues, we can create a future that is more enlightened, more connected, and more just for all people.
Combating disinformation and misinformation is a complex issue that requires a multi-pronged approach. Here are 7 solutions that can help address the problem:
Media literacy education: educate and use the Ethics Code of Conduct for Cyber Peace and Security, contributed by Boston Global Forum 2015
Collaboration between governments, media companies, and tech firms
Transparency in political advertising
Support for independent journalism
