Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) is an international and multistakeholder initiative to guide the responsible development and use of AI, grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, and economic growth. The initiative will look to bridge the gap between theory and practice on AI by supporting cutting-edge research and applied activities on AI-related priorities

Four Working Group themes of GPAI

GPAI will bring together leading experts from industry, civil society, governments, and academia to collaborate across four Working Group themes:

  • Responsible AI;
  • Data Governance;
  • The Future of Work;

GPAI’s experts will also investigate how AI can be leveraged to better respond to and recover from COVID-19.
