“The time to think globally about an AI governance framework that reinforces rather than undermines democratic values is now.” The Global AI Ethics Consortium (GAIEC)

Founded on April 15th, 2020 and joining together experts from more than 18 institutes across 6 continents, the GAIEC celebrates its first anniversary this month.

In honor of that, the GAIEC has taken this opportunity to bring forward a topic of the utmost importance both in terms of the state of the global AI community and the use of AI in society: the need for real and inclusive public and civil society participation in the AI governance process.
