Project ID 570GLO3017

This proposal will target four countries to translate the Recommendation on the Ethics of AI into national institutional and regulatory frameworks and to build a national consensus on the shared vision for AI. At the end of this project, these countries will have national AI strategies developed from a bottom-up approach and their capacities enhanced based on an ethical framework. A meta-strategy will be developed for the global roll-out, based on the evidence and experience gained by the four pilots.
