The global race to regulate AI is no longer in its infancy, with countries around the world setting the tone for binding and non-binding regulatory standards. From the European Union’s AI Act to Brazil’s AI Bill and the White House Executive Order on AI, and from Singapore’s Model AI Governance Framework to the African Union’s AI Continental Strategy, discussions on the norms that should underpin the regulation of AI remain center stage. While regional approaches to AI regulation have been prioritized, global, multi-stakeholder dialogue has materialized in international fora such as the UN, the OECD, the G7, and the GPA. This panel explores what an international law on AI may look like noting that the impacts of AI systems are cross-border in nature. Crucially, the conversation will be informed by the role of data protections laws in informing AI norms.

  • What are the challenges posed by transnational AI systems, and do current regulatory frameworks help to address them?
  • What can we learn from international and regional data protection law to facilitate a global approach to AI regulation?
  • How are regional AI norms and frameworks influencing one another?
  • What would an international law on AI look like?
