Towards a citizen-centered governance:
Quick response to civic needs through the responsible use of AI.
Nations need to move beyond economic growth and GDP. There is an urgent need to dramatically increase their focus on social prosperity. In this context, AI can be a disruptive tool to create new habits around data-informed decisions. The democratization of this data-driven culture can empower and generate abundance or can increase social gaps generating big social damages.
The use of data and AI presents several challenges that, if not addressed can generate deepen existing social inequalities and create new digital inequalities, such as:
Education and transparency in data sharingNot everyone has the same knowledge level to understand what data privacy and sharing is, and how the data we share is being used. Differences in digital education can broaden inequalities in data privacy, putting those with less digital knowledge in a weaker position.
Limited data representativenessBiased datasets can generate biased results with a direct impact on citizens opportunities.
Shared benefitsThe AI industry will have an impact on different stakeholders, from citizens to governments and also the natural environment. It is important to make sure that impact is positive.
