G20 adopts FGV Sao Paulo Law School initiative to combat AI discrimination

The Study Group on the Impact of Technology on Legal, Social and Economic Relations (Gitec) at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo Law School recently presented the G20 with a policy paper regarding discrimination in artificial intelligence.

The proposal was submitted to the T20, a G20 engagement group that brings together think tanks and research centers in G20 members and guest countries. The aim is to receive contributions in different formats, including public policy proposals in response to global challenges in various areas of knowledge. The G20 is a body that brings together the world’s leading countries and this initiative seeks to rethink public policies on a global scale.

Coordinated by Professor Roberto Caparroz de Almeida, who teaches on the FGV Sao Paulo Law School’s Professional Master’s and Doctoral Program, Gitec aims to study the relationship between technology, law and the economy. Titled “Dataset Discrimination in Government Surveillance: A Threat to Equality and Justice,” Gitec’s proposal was selected to be analyzed by T20’s Task Force 5 – Inclusive Digital Transformation, which focuses efforts on drawing up recommendations that can leverage digital innovations to promote the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, while ensuring social inclusion and ethical considerations.

The proposal aims to debate the application of artificial intelligence in government surveillance in public areas, with an emphasis on the risks that the widespread adoption of this technology may entail, including errors, abuse and biases in datasets. Based on data that detected 627 AI incidents related to public and private sector entities, the idea is to discuss these dangers and develop strategies to mitigate them, in order to guarantee the fair and balanced use of AI in public security.

The policy paper will be published in June of this year, following peer review. For more information, click here.
