International Artificial Intelligence Clearinghouse

We aim to create an AI Clearinghouse with AI experts to function as a platform facilitating cooperation, dialogue and exchange of insights and best practices between on the one side AI researchers, practitioners and on the other regulatory authorities and policy makers.

One of the key missions of the International AI Clearinghouse is to achieve a more comprehensive protection of individuals in an era of big data and artificial intelligence. This will be accomplished by both validating prospective solutions and providing ethical and quality assurance of algorithms. The clearinghouse functions are twofold:

  • Branding mechanism: exchange the best practices and novel ideas about how to endorse companies or projects applying for a stamp of quality approval and the establishment and further development of the clearinghouse as a voluntary network of enforcement bodies and experts can contribute to enhancing their work and their respective enforcement activities and can help deepen the synergies and the safeguarding of the rights and interests of legal entities and individuals.
  • Validation mechanism: protect individuals in digital markets using AI services across legal regimes by validating the algorithms used based on their trustworthiness, ethical principles and transparency. The guiding principle will be that individuals have the right to control the use of their personal data, however it may be collected. IRCAI will launch the initiative as a non-biased and voluntary network of experts and regulators involved in the enforcement of legal regimes in digital markets, with a focus on trustworthiness, ethics, transparency, data protection, consumer and competition law.

Within the framework of the regional initiative for Europe focusing on information and communication technology-centric innovation ecosystems, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and UNESCO AI Institute are collaboratively working to develop a Digital Innovation Profile for Georgia. This project receives support from Georgia’s Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development and Georgia’s Innovation and Technology Agency (GITA). The profile will assess and summarize the opportunities and challenges within the country’s ICT ecosystem, including artificial intelligence (AI).
