AIWS and the Age of Global Enlightenment
The Artificial Intelligence World Society Initiative (AIWS) was founded and announced by Governor Michael Dukakis and Nguyen Anh Tuan in November 2017 as a means of counteracting harmful and unethical uses of AI and building the 7-layer model of the AI World Society, a foundation for the Age of Global Enlightenment.
AIWS seeks to advance the common good through the opportunities to “remake the world” presented by the digital and AI revolution. An “Age of Global Enlightenment” is achievable if action is guided by six anchors:
- Enlightened Political and Social Order
As expressed in the Social Contract for the AI Age, accountability and responsibility are fundamental to fostering global enlightenment.
- Enlightened National Law and Global Governance
As expressed in the Framework of Global Laws and Accord on AI and Digital, proper governance is fundamental to fostering global enlightenment.
- Enlightened Economic Innovation
Every citizen can become an innovator. Socially responsible economic innovation by firms, communities, and individuals is fundamental to fostering global enlightenment.
- Enlightened Cultural Norms
Tolerance for diversity, mutual support, respect, and recognition of the value of every individual are fundamental to fostering global enlightenment.
- Enlightened Education Principles
As expressed in the AIWS Global Enlightenment Education Program, life-long pursuit of and respect for knowledge are fundamental to fostering global enlightenment.
- Enlightened Communication and Discourse
Open forms of discourse, respect for diverse opinions, and fidelity to accuracy in mass and personal communication are fundamental to fostering global enlightenment.
Each of these anchors applies to all levels of social, economic, and political organization, and each is a necessary condition for achieving an Age of Global Enlightenment.
AIWS City, conceptualized by the AI World Society, is a practical model for the Age of Global Enlightenment. See our updates on this page.
