Over the last decade, AI has emerged as the software engine that drives the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This recent progress is remarkable in important respects, but also creates unique challenges.  

Indeed, Governments around the world are increasingly aware of the fact that without an appropriate regulatory environment, AI may replicate or even exacerbate human bias and discrimination and lead to other unintended and harmful consequences. 

To investigate what such an environment should be, the World Economic Forum is spearheading a multistakeholder, policy pilot project anchored in New Zealand and supported by a global community of experts to co-design actionable governance frameworks for AI regulation. Professor Horst Eidenmueller has contributed to the white paper which has just been published

The white paper presents a set of frameworks that will be piloted to develop a better understanding of what works and why.
