Australia and Korea, along with 12 other states, have become founding members of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI). The joint partnership is a multi-stakeholder initiative aiming to “develop machine intelligence that fully reflects fundamental freedoms and the shared democratic values.”
In the short term, GPAI experts will investigate how AI can be used to efficiently respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the long term, this global partnership presents an opportunity for Australia and Korea to further their bilateral relations as well as their respective relations. Australia has nominated Professor Genevieve Bell, Professor Elanor Huntington, Professor Enrico Coiera, Dr Paul Dalby and Professor Toby Walsh as part of the GPAI working groups. South Korea will dispatch scientists and engineers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, the Korea Information Society Development Institute and SK Telecom to take part in the working groups.
