STOA's new Partnership on AI with the OECD's Global Parliamentary Network (GPN) was formally launched on 2 December 2020 during an online meeting of the GPN's Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence, which was organised with STOA. A video was also jointly produced to introduce the partnership.

One hundred and twenty Members of Parliaments from all around the world, along with over one hundred parliamentary staff members, joined together to mark the launch of the partnership, share expertise and exchange details of concrete initiatives taken in parliaments.

"It is our common hope that, by establishing such a partnership, we can provide the safeguards that are necessary to ensure that our societies harness the benefits of AI while mitigating its risks." STOA Chair Eva KAILI

STOA and its new Centre for AI (C4AI) are already engaged with the next steps of their productive collaboration with the OECD Parliamentary Group on AI, which will enhance its reach, relevance and value to parliamentarians, policymakers and citizens.
