Singapore’s Advisory Council on the Ethical Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data has held its inaugural meeting, discussing a paper released in June by the country’s Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) on the responsible development and adoption of AI and calling for broader engagement and consultation to improve the draft model framework, according to the Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA).
The Council is one of three interlinked initiatives by Singapore to position the country as a leading hub for AI, along with the PDPC paper and a research program run by the Singapore Management University on AI governance and data use. Council members include Google, Microsoft, and Alibaba, as well as the leaders of local companies. They intend to support Singapore’s efforts to contribute to the global discourse on AI by proposing a pragmatic governance framework to put ethical principles into practice. An updated draft of the AI governance model will be made available soon, according to the announcement.
