Statement Response
Organizations are sufficiently expanding risk management capabilities to address AI-related risks. Disagree “From environmental to food safety concerns, risk management is necessarily a collective effort driven by the level of public scrutiny. Despite some important initiatives by a few companies and governments, our society remains immature in this regard. There is still a huge gap in terms of information asymmetry that is impeding more efficient risk management in the AI field.

We are combining soft and hard laws to foster accountable mechanisms for AI risk management. From UNESCO’s guidelines to President Biden’s executive order and the Brazilian draft AI bill that’s under consideration, these efforts advocate, respectively, for international cooperation to publicly map AI incidents, mandatory algorithmic impact assessments, and establishing an open database cataloging high-risk AIs and how they are evaluated in terms of effective risk mitigation. The most pressing issue is whether we, as a society, are democratically expanding our risk management capabilities. Therefore, it is crucial to qualify what kind of risk management we desire as a society; otherwise, this technology may lead to technocracy.”
