Moving from Principles to Practice in Responsible AI around the world: Announcement of the new Global Index on Responsible AI

November 30, 2021

We would like you to invite you to a panel discussion with leading voices on artificial intelligence (AI) and society as we announce the Global Index on Responsible AI. 

The Global Index is a new initiative of the Data for Development Network (D4D.net), in collaboration with the South African-based think tank, Research ICT Africa, with support Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

The Global Index on Responsible AI will measure progress toward the responsible use and development of artificial intelligence in over 100 countries around the world, from a distinctly human-rights-based perspective. 

The intention is to co-create the Global Index with a diverse range of stakeholders in order to ensure its value as a basis for informed decisions by policymakers on the ground. This event will kick off a consultative engagement process and offer initial information about the project, the key partners involved and its expected utility in advancing human rights and democracy in the use and development of AI.  

This event will take place on the side of the Summit for Democracy, hosted by United States President Joe Biden. The Summit for Democracy represents an important international forum to advance commitments in support of democracy and human rights.
