The AI for Social Good Phase I focused on bringing together a network of AI experts across disciplines to explore how policies can support the adequate promotion and control of AI for the good of society. An adequate governance system for the development, management, and use of AI is seen as crucial in ensuring that the benefits of integrating and analyzing large quantities of data are maximized, while the potential risks are mitigated.
Outcomes of the two year project are the:
Artificial Intelligence for Social Good Report which feature realities and experiences from Asia and the Pacific, and provides various perspectives on what AI for social good may look like in this region. The report offers suggestions from the research community on how policymakers can encourage, use, and regulate AI for social good.
In this phase, the project team also held a AI For Social Good Summit in November 2020.
