UN Forms AI Advisory Body, iSPIRT’s Sharad Sharma To Represent India
The United Nations has formed a council of 39 experts to oversee global artificial intelligence (AI) guidelines. This group includes representatives from technology businesses, government officials, and academics from all over the world. Hiroaki Kitano from Sony, Mira Murati from OpenAI, and Natasha Crampton from Microsoft are among the well-known members.
Sharad Sharma, co-founder and volunteer of the iSPIRT Foundation, a non-profit tech think tank, has been invited to represent India.
The AI Advisory Body’s mission is to ensure that AI does good while preventing it from being used in ways that undermine trust, society, and democracy. People are concerned about the influence of AI, such as ChatGPT. Many countries are developing their own AI guidelines, but there is a demand for countries to collaborate. The UN group will give some suggestions by the end of this year and more detailed recommendations by the summer of 2024.
