Kantify CEO appointed to the Global Partnership on AI

Our CEO has been appointed by the European Commission to the Global Partnership on AI (GPAI)

Kantify is pleased to announce the appointment of its CEO to the new international body that will be in charge of defining recommendations for Artificial Intelligence governance.

Born out of the Canadian and French G7 Presidencies in 2018 and 2019, GPAI was officially proposed by France and Canada at the Biarritz Summit in August 2019. G7 Leaders then officially welcomed the OECD’s willingness to support their work to advance AI, in line with its Recommendation on AI. The GPAI will initially be comprised of four working groups focused on responsible AI, data governance, the future of work, and innovation and commercialization.

The GPAI will bring together experts from industry, government, civil society, and academia to conduct research and pilot projects on AI. Its objective, as set out by founding members Australia, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, is to bridge the gap between theory and practice on AI policy. An example is to look at how AI could help societies respond to and recover from the Covid-19 crisis.
