Taiwan: Generative AI and Ethical Governance

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The National Science and Technology Council Chairman and Minister without portfolio, Tsung-Tsong Wu, attended a discussion hosted by the Ministry of Digital Affairs (moda) on “Democratising AI Futures” and talked about strategies for addressing the emergence of generative AI.

All government departments need to build generative AI, according to Minister Tsung-Tsong. Several government initiatives can be made more efficient by the successful application of generative AI. Since citizens have a stake in how this technology is applied, it was very appreciated that the moda engaged in democratic discourse on topics pertaining to artificial intelligence (AI).

Minister Audrey Tang of the moda stated that she anticipated this gathering would be a useful forum for talking about AI ethics. To help the government use AI to increase administrative efficiency and foster public-government confidence, pertinent laws and instructional training programmes will also be developed in the future.

The idea was to use a deliberative model with public engagement to influence the direction of AI development in the future. To collectively discuss the future of AI, a variety of issues were explored through processes like group discussions, exchanges, and debates.

These included internal government applications, emerging regulatory mechanisms, information identification and fair use, data openness and widespread application, redefining intellectual property, and the impact on education and human cognition.

Additionally, the venue featured interactive exhibits using generative AI that were set up in legally compliant local environments as demonstration references, in response to the recently published “Administrative Guidelines for the Use of Generative AI by the Executive Yuan and its Affiliated Agencies.”

According to Minister Audrey, with the increasing use of generative AI, AI services now encompass a wide range of tasks, such as translating, creating art, programming, and even serving as an inspiration source. As a result, they have become crucial collaborators across several industries.

However, AI also has a significant impact on society. For instance, some criminals utilise it to mimic the voices and faces of others. This not only destroys property and erodes trust between people, but it will also seriously upend democratic systems if it is exploited by hostile actors and totalitarian governments.

Minister Audrey brought up the fact that the most sophisticated generative AI models available today are frequently developed by a single business and made available for public usage worldwide. However, there are frequently large disparities in how things are interpreted due to the diverse cultures and values found in various geographic areas.

One-source models not only tend to be skewed towards particular groups, but they also have difficulty adjusting to the world’s diversity. Now a formal member of the global non-governmental group “Collective Intelligence Project, CIP,” the modal has started working with business partners like Anthropic and OpenAI on the “Alignment Assemblies” project.

They have begun discussions on the “Democratisation of AI” and arranged thought-provoking seminars to address how to react to the emergence of generative AI using the “Ideathon” platform. The goal is for the nation to be the first to employ language models, supporting individuals in their decision-making to match AI principles with national goals.

The National Science and Technology Council’s “Technology, Society, and Democracy Centre” think tank and the moda will work together to develop pertinent regulations as well as mechanisms for education and training in response to the expectations of different sectors regarding the appropriate application of AI in public governance.

This will support the government’s efforts to employ AI to improve administrative efficiency while upholding ethical standards, encouraging independent thought and creativity, and fostering public-government confidence.
