Faculty of Economics Professor, Dr. Zlatko Lagumdžija at the panel on the International Agreement on Artificial Intelligence
The Artificial Intelligence World Society (AIWS) in collaboration with the Boston Global Forum has published a report entitled “World Leaders and Leading Scientists in the First Panel of the International Artificial Intelligence Agreement.”
Following the adoption of the New Social Contract in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, the World Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIWS) and its partners have launched a series of international conferences and activities to formulate an International Agreement on Artificial Intelligence and establish World Alliance for Digital Governance under the auspices of the United Nations.
The President of the Boston Global Forum, Governor Michael Dukakis, opened the first panel dedicated to the International Artificial Intelligence Agreement, where AIWS mentors and co-authors of the “New Social Artificial Intelligence Agreement”, Dr. Zlatko Lagumdžija, professor at the Faculty of Economics, University of Sarajevo, Dr. Varira Vika Freiberg, Nizami Ganjavi International Center president (NGIC) and former president of Latvia, Yasuhide Nakayama, Minister of Defense of Japan and Dr. Nazli Choucri, professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and director of the Global System for Sustainable Development (GSSD).
At the first AIWS panel, Prof. Dr. Zlatko Lagumdžija, as a co-author of the “New Social Contract in the Age of Artificial Intelligence”, a member of the AIWS Board and the team for the International Artificial Intelligence Agreement, spoke about the reasons for accelerating the establishment of multilateral structures, their mission and structure needed for implementation and monitoring this area.
His presentation focused on artificial intelligence, based on human rights, goals and universal values, which requires the cooperation of all actors and global governance mechanisms about which much can be learned using historical lessons on the development of atomic energy. One of the conclusions was that Eisenhower's leadership, more than six decades ago in the establishment of the UN Atomic Energy Agency, should be a model for the formation of an inclusive international organization for artificial intelligence, based on the involvement of all relevant actors (multistakeholder approach).
