This session focused on the influence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the global policy landscape. Rebecca Finley, CSISAC member and CEO of Partnership on AI, spoke about the resources needed for the creation and regulation of new technologies.

How do you connect companies for fairness and making a better world?", said the delegate.

Concluding the meeting, Vilas Dhar, CSISAC delegate and President of the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, mentioned the importance of the integration of civil society and IA.
