In recent times, the governance of AI has gained immense attention globally. Leading the charge in this domain is the Boston Global Forum (BGF), which established the AI World Society (AIWS) Initiative in 2017 for global governance of AI and Digital. Notable milestones include the AIWS-G7 Summit 2019 Initiative and the launch of the Social Contract for the AI Age and AIWS City, in collaboration with the World Leadership Alliance-Club de Madrid in September 2020. Notably, in September 2021, the AI International Accord and Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG) were introduced by BGF and World Leadership Alliance – Club de Madrid.
BGF Chairman Governor Michael Dukakis and BGF CEO Nguyen Anh Tuan: “The best way to solve challenges, threats, and perils from AI and Digital Transformation is to shape a new society with our innovative, pioneering ideas and concepts.”
From February to April 2023, the Boston Global Forum organized a series of BGF High-level Conferences to develop a Framework for Global Governance of AI. On April 30, 2023, BGF announced the Framework for Global Alliance of AI.
Collaborating with the Global Internet Governance, Digital Empowerment, and Security Alliance (GLIDES) of Civil20 (C20) official engagement group of India’s G20 presidency from May 12, 2023, BGF has taken further actions, encouraging civic society organizations and citizens to contribute to action plans for Global Governance of AI.
BGF and GLIDES are committed to contributing to the C20 – G20 Summit India 2023, with a focus on the following plans:
- AI-Powered Enlightenment Alliance (AIEA) for Oversight of AI Systems: Major technology companies, including Amazon, Google, Meta, Microsoft, and others, have made significant commitments to AI safeguards brokered by President Joe Biden’s White House. To ensure oversight and responsible development of the next generation of AI systems, BGF, Shinzo Abe Initiative for Peace and Security, GADG, and GLIDES have come together to form the AI-Powered Enlightenment Alliance (AIEA) and will volunteer as third-party oversight.
