What can the G20 do to implement AI principles and to shape global data governance?

Under Japan’s presidency, the G20 endorsed Principles for responsible stewardship of Trustworthy AI. Under these principles, it is required that “stakeholders […] proactively engage in responsible stewardship of trustworthy AI in pursuit of beneficial outcomes for people and planet.” The principles are centered on human values, fairness, transparency, explainability, robustness, security, safety and accountability. Being (necessarily) broad in tone, these principles now require specific steps towards implementation through regulatory actions, especially because current practices by many AI systems do not fully reflect them. This panel will discuss how the G20 can shape and coordinate AI policies and makes recommendations to G20 leaders in how their national governments can act to adequately protect citizens, consumers, workers and markets.
