Chair, Rohan Samarajiva was appointed to the UN Global Pulse Expert Group on Governance of Data and AI. The group is an expansion of the UN Global Pulse Data Privacy Advisory Group which was established in 2014, and of which Samarajiva was a member since inception. The move to place more focus on AI ethics and human rights, “given the rapid development and use of emerging technologies across all sectors globally,” falls in line with the UN Secretary-General’s Strategy on New Technologies which has called for the responsible adoption of AI and other frontier technologies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.
The inaugural meeting of the expanded group was held 13-15 November in Geneva.
