Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to improve the lives of many people across the world. The breakneck pace of its development has also highlighted its potential for harm-and the urgent need for robust & innovative policy & governance. Speaking with a panel of experts, Alondra Nelson examines what forms of global collaboration are needed to address issues such as inequality & climate change, privacy protections, & human rights. From shared regulation & alignment of democratic laws, to equitable benefit distribution, to the prevention of dangerous AI proliferation, to the consolidation of power & more, the evolving nature of AI-combined with its global impact-requires the untangling of complex dynamics to provide a clear picture for effective future policymaking & to engender a more just & safer world.
