This week in The History of AI at AIWS.net – The Democratic Alliance on Digital Governance Conference was hosted on July 1st, 2020. The subheading of this event was “Protecting and Strengthening Democracy in the Aftermath of COVID-19”.
This conference was a collaboration between the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC) and the Boston Global Forum. Leaders of the IPAC – Sir Iain Duncan Smith, Senator Kimberley Kitching, and MEP Miriam Lexmann – spoke and dialoged with political leaders and distinguished thinkers to build new alliances and new global economic strategies after the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was moderated by Governor Michael Dukakis. The Democratic Alliance is a part of the Social Contract 2020, A New Social Contract in the Age of AI.
This conference, albeit happening just in the past year, is a contributing stone to the foundation and the road to the Social Contract 2020, which was released later that year. Thus, the HAI project considers this a milestone in the development of artificial intelligence, in broader society and in the context of the global pandemic.
