Theme: An urgent need for global regulations and governance for AI and emerging technologies

Co-Hosted By:

The proliferation of AI and emerging technologies is rapidly reshaping our digital ecosystems, demanding immediate and coordinated regulatory responses on a global scale. While the marriage of AI with the metaverse and other platforms heralds a new age of innovation, it simultaneously introduces complexities that challenge our existing policy frameworks. These complexities, coupled with the borderless nature of the metaverse, underscore the urgent imperative for international governance that ensures user protection and technological growth in tandem.

As we navigate this uncharted terrain, the call for collective global action resonates stronger than ever. Constructing these new regulatory scaffolds isn’t a solitary endeavor; it mandates a harmonized effort, involving policymakers, technologists, legal experts, and users alike. Every stakeholder plays a pivotal role in drafting a future where AI and related technologies are used responsibly, ethically, and to the benefit of humanity at large.

This roundtable is set to be a crucible for meaningful dialogue and collaboration. Together, participants will endeavor to draft actionable strategies, regulatory blueprints, and governance models that prioritize both innovation and the overarching safety and rights of users in the AI-augmented world.
