ALLAI’s Virginia Dignum joins the Global Partnership on AI

The Global Partnership on AI (GPAI) is an international initiative created by France and Canada along with Australia, the European Union, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Slovenia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

It is also multiparty and seeks to guide responsible development and use of AI in a spirit of respect for human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation and economic growth. In order to achieve this goal, member countries will set themselves to building bridges between theory and practice, and lend their support to cutting-edge research activities and practical implementation activities connected with AI priorities.
