Governor Michael Dukakis honored the Speaker of Riksdag, Andreas Norlen, as World Leader for Peace and Security 2021.

Distinguished speeches from Andreas Norlen, Cameron Kerry, and Shinzo Abe contributed thoughtful ideas and significant messages to the world today and to the Global Alliance for Digital Governance and Global Law and Accord on AI and Digital.

BGF will introduce these special speeches on the BGF website over the coming weeks.

The discussion and debate are brilliant with many great ideas for the Draft of Declaration of Action for Global Law and Accord on AI and Digital.

Mr. Nam Pham, former Assistant Secretary of Massachusetts Government, raised his ideas in the discussion about the action plan for Global Law and Accord on AI and Digital:

My most favorite Einstein’s quote is “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Our current knowledge is that there is not much we can do to hold rogue regimes dictatorships like China or Russia accountable for their misuses of AI. So let’s imagine that we can come up with some concrete actionable plans that we can hold any bad actors accountable whether it is a bad country or corporation.

We need to think outside of the box and shoot for the stars or the moon.”
