Artificial Intelligence needs regulation
Covid had WHO, Climate change IPCC, both weak but at least bringing to gether some cooperation. What about AI? Here is the state of global regulation on AI (note absence of major players, regulation, sanctions or rules): "The Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI or Gee-Pay) is an international and multistakeholder initiative that aims to advance the responsible and human-centric development and use of artificial intelligence. Specifically, GPAI brings together leading experts from science, industry, civil society, and governments to "bridge the gap between theory and practice" through applied AI projects and activities. The goal is to facilitate international collaboration, reduce duplication between governments, and act as a global reference point on discussions on responsible AI. First announced on the margins of the 2018 G7 Summit by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, GPAI officially launched on June 15, 2020 with fifteen founding members: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union. The OECD hosts a dedicated secretariat to support GPAI's governing bodies and activities. UNESCO joined the partnership in December 2020 as an observer.  On November 11, 2021, Czechia, Israel and few more countries also joined the GPAI." (Wikipedia Dec 2021) My idea is that people should demand better global governance structures for emerging global issues that potentially affect our personal wellbeing. This means starting to have conversations not just as to how we control AI, but as to how we make and enforce global rules at all. You and I don't need regulation, but those who can hurt us do.
