How to govern artificial intelligence and the torrent of data flowing across the globe
In February 2020, the European Commission proclaimed that “data will reshape the way we produce, consume and live,” as it launched a new digital strategy. Indeed, detailed data about how the world works, together with massive investment - US$37.5 billion a year - is driving the rapid development of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). At the same time, large sums of money are flowing into massive data infrastructure projects – “data spaces”, cloud services and 5G networks. The opportunities – for improved healthcare, better urban management, greener and faster transport, and economic growth generally – are exciting and enormous.
To debate how to best govern big data and artificial intelligence for the greater good, Science|Business has formed a platform for companies, universities and public sector organisations. This global group is meeting regularly in private and public to share intelligence and facilitate dialogue. For more information about how to get involved, contact David Pringle, Senior Adviser.
