Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence

Organization founded in 2020, GPAI (“gee-pay”) is a multistakeholder initiative bringing together leading experts from science, industry, civil society, international organizations and government that share values to bridge the gap between theory and practice on AI by supporting cutting-edge research and applied activities on AI-related priorities. We aim to provide a mechanism for sharing multidisciplinary research and identifying key issues among AI practitioners, with the objective of facilitating international collaboration, reducing duplication, acting as a global reference point for specific AI issues, and ultimately promoting trust in and the adoption of trustworthy AI. Through the collaboration within our working groups, GPAI assesses – on a comprehensive, objective, open, and transparent basis – the scientific, technical, and socio-economic information relevant to understanding AI impacts, encouraging its responsible development and options for adaptation and mitigation of potential challenges.

In its first few years, GPAI experts will collaborate across four working groups on the themes of responsible AIdata governancethe future of work, and innovation and commercialization. Members and participants of GPAI are brought together first and foremost by a shared commitment to the values expressed in the OECD Recommendation on Artificial Intelligence. All GPAI activities are intended to foster responsible development of AI grounded in these principles of human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation and economic growth.

Working Group on Responsible AI

The mission of our working group is simple: we strive to foster and contribute to the responsible development, use and governance of human-centred AI systems, in congruence with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

It is worth noting that GPAI’s working groups do not operate in silos, so we may collaborate with other GPAI groups from time to time. For instance, we may interface with the data governance working group when our respective projects share common dimensions. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have also formed an ad hoc sub-group on AI and pandemic response to support the responsible development, use and governance of AI in this specific area.
