While fourth industrial revolution (4IR) technologies can help to drive social breakthroughs and economic value, they also have the potential for misuse. An important consideration for governments, businesses and civil society is how can these technologies be harnessed appropriately, and how can technology governance be a foundational component of the development and deployment. We’ll discuss:
- Common governance gaps and risks of 4IR technologies
- Innovative governance frameworks developed by the public sector, the private sector, and non- government institutions
- Diving deeper into governance gaps and innovative governance frameworks for artificial intelligence technologies
