Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already changed the way we interact with technology and the impact is expected to grow exponentially. This development raises important questions, among others, of responsibility, regulation, and democratic governance.
In response to the challenge, the Boston Global Forum (BGF) is hosting
“BGF High-Level Conference:
AI Assistant Regulation Summit: Fostering a Tech Enlightenment Economy Alliance”
The conference serves as the closing event of the BGF High-level Dialog on Regulation Framework on AI Assistants and ChatGPT initiated on February 28, 2023.
The Dialog has brought together public leaders, thinkers, strategists, scholars, and innovators committed to developing an effective and sustainable framework for responsible democratic governance of AI. Based on the AI International Accord (AIIA), the goal is to protect fundamental democratic rights while managing the potential risks in this new era of human-digital interface. The Dialogue has articulated key pillars for transformative technology, economy, and society in four major democracies (US, Europe, Japan, and India) by advancing a new Silicon Valley-type model, the Global Enlightenment Mountain Program.
This event will discuss new AI assistants, such as T-Lead, T-Kindness, and Enligh-T, designed to promote the responsible development and deployment of AI as the first contribution to the Global Enlightenment Mountain Program.
The conference will also recognize the 90th birthday year of Governor Michael Dukakis. To commemorate it, a Liber Amicorum book initiative titled From the Massachusetts Miracle to the Age of Global Enlightenment will be announced.
In addition, the BGF and Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation will present the World Leader in AIWS Award 2023 to the Japanese Minister of Economic Security Sanae Takaichi. She will deliver a speech at the Conference
