The Forum on Information and Democracy (FID) calls upon those working on artificial intelligence to share their recommendations and insights to regulate artificial intelligence and mitigate its implication on the information and communication space.
With a mandate from the International Partnership for Information and Democracy, the Forum develops and delivers evidence-based policy recommendations to safeguard the democratic information space in the face of technological evolutions. Through multi-stakeholder processes driven by renowned experts in their fields, the Forum seeks and integrates perspectives, experiences and expertise from its ever-expanding network of academic, research and civil society partners across the world, including throughout the Global South.
We launched our latest policy recommendation development process, on 28 September , led by a working group of 14 noted experts and co-chaired by Laura Schertel Mendes, Lawyer and Professor of Civil Law at the University of Brasilia and Jonathan Stray, Senior Scientist at the Berkeley Center for Human-Compatible AI. This team will seek broad input from around the world and deliver key policy recommendations to the 51 signatory states of the International Partnership for Information and Democracy and to other stakeholders.
The working group’s mandate is to develop policy recommendations to define guardrails for the development and deployment of AI systems, define accountability and liability regimes for the developers, deployers, users and subjects of AI systems and options for a democratic governance of AI.
“AI is impacting different regions in very different ways. As we devise international standards for the development of these technologies, it is crucial to inform this work with expertise from different regions and fields of interest,” says Katharina Zügel, policy manager at the Forum on Information and Democracy. “We encourage those with relevant expertise and experience to submit their ideas so that this policy development process reflects both the broad and the specific experiences of people around the world.”
We address this call, open until November 26, 2023, to researchers, experts and organizations from all over the world specialized in these issues. Contributions should detail proposals for regulation or self-regulation of AI systems and suggest technical solutions. Contributions can take the form of answers to our questionnaire or submissions by email. Contributions can address specific sub-topics or consist of already existing papers or opinion pieces.
