The Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence launches with key international partners

GPAI is an international and multistakeholder initiative to support and guide the responsible use and development of AI, grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation and economic growth. In order to achieve this goal, the initiative will look to bridge the gap between theory and practice on AI by supporting cutting-edge research and applied projects, pilots, and experimentation on AI-related priorities.

In collaboration with partners and international organizations, GPAI will bring together leading experts from industry, civil society, and governments, and academia to collaborate across four Working Group themes: 1) Responsible AI; 2) Data Governance; 3) The Future of Work; and 4) Innovation & Commercialization. Critically, in the short term, GPAI’s experts will also investigate how AI can be leveraged to better respond to and recover from COVID-19.  Nine Slovenian experts will be involved in the working group research.

GPAI will be supported by a Secretariat, to be hosted at the OECD Headquarters in Paris, as well as by two Centres of Expertise – one each in Montréal and Paris. The Centres will provide administrative and research support for the practical projects undertaken or assessed by Working Group experts from various sectors and disciplines. The Centres will also plan the annual GPAI Multistakeholder Experts Group Plenary, the first of which will be hosted by Canada in December 2020.

GPAI’s founding members include Australia, Canada, the European Union, Germany, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. GPAI members commit to the responsible and human-centric development and use of AI in a manner consistent with human rights, fundamental freedoms, and our shared democratic values.
