Improving the governance of transformative technologies
The policy team at FLI works to reduce extreme, large-scale risks from transformative technologies by improving national and international governance of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
FLI has spearheaded numerous efforts to this end. Most notably, in 2017 we created the influential Asilomar AI principles, a set of governance principles signed by thousands of leading minds in AI research and industry. More recently, the UN Secretary General consulted FLI as the civil society ‘co-champion’ for AI recommendations on the Digital Cooperation Roadmap.
In the civilian domain, we advise the European Union on how to strengthen and future-proof their upcoming EU AI Act, and U.S. policymakers on how to best govern advanced AI systems. In the military domain, we advocate for a treaty on autonomous weapons at the United Nations and inform policymakers about the risks of incorporating AI systems into nuclear launch.
