Building on the Hamburg Statement and the G20 Roadmap for Digitalization: Toward a G20 framework for artificial intelligence in the workplace


  • Twomey, Paul


Building on the 2017 Hamburg Statement and the G20 Roadmap for Digitalization, this paper recommends a G20 framework for artificial intelligence in the workplace. It proposes high level principles for such a framework for G-20 governments to enable the smoother, internationally broader and more socially acceptable introduction of big data and AI. The principles are dedicated to the work space. It summarises the main issues behind the framework principles. It also suggests two paths towards adoption of a G-20 framework for artificial intelligence in the workplace.
