Boston Global Forum CEO Nguyen Anh Tuan presented the special address
Global Enlightenment Community: From Words to Actions – The Urgency for Government and Civic Action at the “Technology and Security for One World” Summit May 12-14, 2023. He presented an idea in allying social society organizations in building data and AI economy for every citizen:
We will establish a technology-driven economic market across the United States, Japan, India, Europe, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Israel, ASEAN, and beyond. Our goal is to connect with all countries and citizens who uphold and implement the standards set forth in the Social Contract for the AI Age. Through this alliance, we will leverage the power of the market and democracy to protect values, standards, and the dignity of individuals worldwide.
While our focus initially lies on implementing these initiatives in advanced countries, we acknowledge the importance of extending our efforts to developing nations in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. The ultimate vision is to establish the Age of Global Enlightenment, turning the AIWS model into a tangible reality. This path of governance, guided by responsible humans and propelled by the right goals and a beautiful model, shows the synthesis between human ingenuity and new technologies.
Let GADG, the Global Enlightenment Community, and GLIDES consolidate and unite to carry out these actions.
This market system, with the GEM platform at its core, will empower citizens and protect their dignity against the influence of undemocratic institutions.
Our dedication to building a united force of citizens does not stop at the aforementioned regions. We also deeply care about the countries in Africa and the Middle East, recognizing their immense potential for growth and development. While we focus on implementing our initiatives in advanced nations first, we are committed to extending our support and collaboration to these developing countries. By fostering partnerships and providing the necessary resources, we aim to empower their citizens and ensure they are not left behind in the journey towards the Age of Global Enlightenment.
To achieve our collective vision, we need to leverage our knowledge, optimize our strategies, and take reasonable actions based on the best available information. It is through alliances and connections among progressive resources that we can create a powerful and unified voice—one that resonates with democratic citizens around the world. Together, we can help every individual become an educated and democratic global citizen, capable of innovating and shaping the future of our global society.
The Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG) and the Global Internet Governance, Digital Empowerment and Security Alliance (GLIDES) will play crucial roles in coordinating these resources. They will serve as the driving force behind comprehensive human progress, ensuring that the power of AI is harnessed for good and that humanity remains in control of its own destiny.
Let us remember that the market is not merely a tool for economic exchange but a force that can shape societies. By harnessing the power of the market and aligning it with our shared values and standards, we can protect the dignity and worth of every individual. This alliance of citizens in the United States, Europe, India, Japan, Australia, Canada, South Korea, ASEAN, Brazil, and beyond will stand as a testament to our commitment to building a fair, just, and prosperous global society.
