Working Group on Responsible AI

The work of the Working Group on Responsible AI (RAI) is grounded in a vision of AI that is human-centred, fair, equitable, inclusive and respectful of human rights and democracy, and that aims at contributing positively to the public good. RAI's mandate aligns closely with that vision and GPAI’s overall mission, striving to foster and contribute to the responsible development, use and governance of human-centred AI systems, in congruence with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

RAI, as all other GPAI Working Groups, does not operate in a silo within GPAI. RAI seeks to collaborate with other Working Groups. For instance, RAI works with the Data Governance Working Group when their respective projects share common dimensions.

Finally, the ad hoc AI and Pandemic Response Subgroup that was created in July 2020 to support the responsible development and use of AI-enabled solutions to COVID-19 and other future pandemics, was merged to the RAI in February 2022. The projects this group were working on were also transferred under the stewardship of the RAI.
