missing links in AI governance book cover

Mila – Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have joined forces on a book entitled Missing links in AI governance. Focussed on the need for better governance of AI, the book comprises 18 chapters written by academics, civil society representatives, innovators and policy makers.

The book explores themes such as the influence of AI on indigenous and LGBTI communities, the necessary inclusion of all countries in global governance, and the use of AI to support innovation for socially beneficial purposes. It maps out possible solutions to foster an AI development that is ethical, inclusive, and respectful of human rights.

The authors also warn against the use of AI in potentially harmful contexts like autonomous weapons or the manipulation of digital content for social destabilization, deplore the increasing centralization of decision-making power in the development of AI systems and biases embedded in them, and the lack of transparency and accountability in the industry.

To celebrate the book launch, Mila hosted a discussion between two of the contributors: Yoshua Bengio and Kate Crawford. You can watch the recorded conversation, which was preceded by speeches from representatives of UNESCO and the Quebec government, here.
