The Boston Global Forum (BGF) offers a venue for world leaders, strategists, thinkers, and innovators to contribute to the process of Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment. The BGF introduced core concepts that are shaping groundbreaking international initiatives, most notably, the Social Contract for the AI Age, AI International Law and Accord, the Global Alliance for Digital Governance, the AI World Society (AIWS) Ecosystem, and the AIWS City.

The evolution of Artificial Intelligence holds great promise in a wide variety of sectors but can also be used in damaging ways, including political manipulation and unwarranted surveillance. For this reason, Michael Dukakis Institute has created the Artificial Intelligence World Society Initiative (AIWS) as a means of counteracting harmful and unethical uses of AI, and building the 7-layer AI model, including ethics, to achieve a peaceful and secure world.

The mission of AIWS is to develop recommendations for the development and implementation of AI in ways that promote the public interest. This includes:

  • Develop an ethical framework for the use of AI.
  • Create Social Contract for the AI Age, AI International Accord, and Global Alliance for Digital Governance
  • Innovate technical protocols to enhance cybersecurity and protect privacy.
  • Building AI-Government, the AIWS City, and AI Initiatives in Politics and Society.
