Prospects for Global Governance to Harness AI for Humanity

Ensuring trust and safety in the digital world

(Session co-organized with Doha Forum). Although profound crises confront the world, humanity has also never had such an abundance of knowledge, resources, or technological means to effectively tackle international problems through collective action. Against this backdrop, the Future of International Cooperation Report 2023 (FIC’23) seeks to facilitate deeper collaboration between governments, civil society, religious leaders, the media, the business community, and international organizations to help present and future generations realize their full potential, especially leading into the September 2024 Summit of the Future. This session, co-hosted by the Doha Forum, Global Institute for Strategic Research at Hamad Bin Khalifa University, and Stimson Center will explore questions on improved global management of artificial intelligence, with the aim of expanding significantly for all nations and peoples the potential benefits of this powerful technology while, simultaneously, mitigating its risks.
