Collaboration: Springer Nature & AI Asia Pacific Institute

The AI Asia Pacific Institute has partnered with Springer Nature, AI and Ethics Journal to publish an annual topical collection of papers on issues relating to the governance of AI. The special issue will focus on the governance of AI related topics from an Asia-Pacific lens and international cooperation’s role in addressing challenges.

The collaboration between the AI Asia Pacific Institute and Springer Nature reflects a shared commitment to promote informed debate and discussion of the ethical, regulatory, and policy implications that arise from the development of AI. As AI continues to transform industries and economies worldwide, it is critical that we understand the potential risks associated with these advancements and work to mitigate them while accelerating impact. 

The research contributors, based out of the AI Asia Pacific Institute, will conduct an in-depth analysis of the critical issues associated with the governance of AI, and will work on publications that will offer recommendations for governments, policymakers, and other stakeholders.

“We are thrilled to partner with the AI Asia Pacific Institute on this important research initiative,” said Professor Larry Medsker, Editor-in-Chief of AI and Ethics Journal.

Professor Larry adds, “As a Journal focused on providing opportunities for academics, scientists, practitioners, policymakers, and the public to consider how AI might affect our lives in the future, and what implications, benefits, and risks might emerge. We are committed to working with partners who share our values and vision for the future.”

The first special issue is expected to be published in 2024, and the findings will be shared at a conference with policymakers, business leaders, and other stakeholders worldwide to inform future AI policy, regulations, and implementation.

“While there are already many researchers and organisations working on the governance of AI around the world, there is a need for more diversity in perspectives and approaches. The Asia Pacific region is vast and diverse, with unique cultural, social, and economic contexts. We hope this project creates an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in the region to contribute to the discourse on AI ethics and to build on the importance of international cooperation in AI.” said Kelly Forbes, Executive Director of the AI Asia Pacific Institute.
