In 2018, Governor Michael Dukakis called for an international accord for AI and, over the last several years, there has been steady progress toward this goal. The Boston Global Forum put forward the Social Contract for the AI Age and AI World Society initiative.
On December 12, 2020, at the Boston Global Forum and Michael Dukakis Institute Ceremony to honor EU Commission President von der Leyen as World Leader for Peace and Security Award, and introduce the AI International Accord Initiative, she called for an EU-US Transatlantic Accord on AI. She emphasized “global standards aligned with our values: Human rights, and pluralism, inclusion and the protection of privacy.” Then at the Munich Security Conference in February, President Biden called for AI rules that “lift people up.” It was a powerful statement.
