Who is afraid of AI?

There is a perception that digital technologies are changing our societies in ways that are detrimental to the well-being of humanity.  At the same time the positive contribution that these technologies make to our lives and to our goal of achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals is very real.  

How do we achieve the desired balance in these positive and negative implications of AI?  Will regulation result in an end to innovation?  Who should be in charge of deciding who and what to regulate?  Where do the media fit into this entire debate? Can the private sector be trusted to self-regulate? Does civil society have a role to play? Does the average citizen have any power to make a difference?

This webinar will not have all the answers. But it will attempt to look at the issues from different perspectives and engage in debate with participants in the online forum.  It will also review the various attempts to initiate AI regulation.

Join us at the online forum, Shaping a Digital Future in Line with Our Values: Why AI and AI Regulation Matter. This is scheduled on Thursday, November 24, 2022 at 1700-1830 (Singapore Standard Time). 

Our resource speaker is Dorothy K. Gordon, Chair, UNESCO Information for All Programme and Board Member, UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education, Board Member World Summit Awards and Board member Linux Professional Institute. Ms. Gordon is associated with the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence.

This webinar is being organized by the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) in partnership with UNESCO and the UNESCO Information for All Programme.
