As ChatGPT noted, “AI has the potential to bring significant benefits to society, but it is crucial to manage its implementation and ensure that it is used in an ethical and responsible way”. Contributors to this e-book, edited by Laura Mahrenbach, discuss this tension, the technology and its governance, both here and in the future.
They illustrate the interaction of diverse issue areas (e.g., economy, environment, culture, etc.) and governance settings (e.g., national, regional, global). And show why exploring both the social implications and governance opportunities (domestic and international) afforded by AI is timely and necessary.
