For the 1st Time, a Social Contract for the 21st Century and Rules and International Laws for AI and the Internet is Introduced

Professor Alex Sandy Pentland, MIT, co-founder of the Social Contract 2020 and one of seven most powerful data scientists, will present the key ideas of the Social Contract 2020 – Social Contract for the 21st Century. In the AI and Internet Age, data play a very significant role. Professor Pentland will deliver “Data for a New Enlightenment”. Data are the lifeblood of decision-making and the raw material for accountability. Without high-quality data providing the right information on the right things at the right time, designing, monitoring and evaluating effective policies becomes almost impossible. New technologies are leading to an exponential increase in the volume and types of data available, creating unprecedented possibilities for informing and transforming society and protecting the environment. Governments, companies, researchers and citizen groups are in a ferment of experimentation, innovation and adaptation to the new world of data, a world in which data are bigger, faster and more detailed than ever before. This is the data revolution.

Specially, Prof. Pentland will introduce the concept Data Cooperative, each citizen will be entitled to access to a smart phone or similar device and will control their own data (Data Home), including a right to privacy.

Individuals would pool their personal data in a single institution — just as they pool money in banks — and that institution would both protect the data and put it to use. Credit unions as one type of organization that could fill this role. And while companies would need to request permission to use consumer data, consumers themselves could request analytic insights from the cooperative.

Paul Nemitz, policymaker of European Union Commission will present Rules and International Laws of AI and Internet as the first time, an international laws of  AI and Internet is introduced and discussed as a speaker of the AI World Conference.
