The Global Partnership on AI (GPAI) is an international initiative to promote responsible AI use that respects human rights and democratic values. The Partnership was conceived by Canada and France during their G7 presidencies and at its launch counted 13 other founding members: Australia, the European Union, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Slovenia, the United Kingdom and the United States. With its Secretariat hosted at the OECD, the GPAI brings together experts from industry, government, civil society and academia, to advance cutting-edge research and pilot projects on AI priorities.
In November 2020, Baroness Shields has been elected Co-Chair of the GPAI Steering Committee and Chair of the GPAI Multi-stakeholder Expert Group Plenary.
The challenge of using AI for good governance urgently concerns public policy, administration and politics in democracies across the world. The goal of the Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance is to develop principles and practical policy recommendations to ensure the democratic use of AI for good governance.
The Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance will investigate the procurement and implementation challenges surrounding the use of AI for good governance faced by democracies around the world, identify best practices for evaluating and managing risks and benefits, and recommend strategies in an effort to take full advantage of technological capacities while mitigating potential harms of AI-enabled public policy.
Drawing from input from experts across a wide range of geographic regions and areas of expertise, including stakeholders from government, industry, technical and civil society, OxCAIGG will bring forward applicable and relevant recommendations for the use of AI for good governance.
We help start-up and scale-up digital tech companies accelerate their growth through a series of programmes, research and events aimed at boosting the number of high-growth businesses in the UK, raising the profile of the sector, and providing a feedback loop from business to government to help shape policy. We also work to eliminate the issues that hold back startups such as skills and access to finance.
Our story began in Shoreditch in 2010, launched by the then Prime Minister David Cameron, to support the East London tech cluster known as London Tech City or Silicon Roundabout. Since then we’ve been on a journey and have spread our activities to cover other parts of the UK including setting up Tech North to run programmes across the North of England.
