Synopsis

A novel governance framework for generative artificial intelligence (AI) has been introduced by Singapore, with an invitation for international feedback. The Model AI Governance Framework for Generative AI (MGF-GenAI) extends beyond the 2019 framework, which focused solely on traditional AI, reflecting the evolving landscape of generative AI. 

The collaborative effort between the AI Verify Foundation and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) underscores Singapore’s commitment to contributing significantly to the global discourse surrounding AI governance.

Minister for Communications and Information, Josephine Teo emphasised the need for a global perspective, stating that AI governance transcends national boundaries. The launch of the updated framework at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, signifies Singapore’s commitment to fostering international collaboration and enrichment of the ongoing global conversation on AI governance. 

The MGF-GenAI is anticipated to be finalized by mid-2024.

This sharing session aims to elucidate Singapore’s pioneering framework, offering clarity on its innovative approach and providing insights into the direction of progress. 

Besides the proposed Model AI Governance Framework for Generative AI, Lee Wan Sie will also share on AI Verify – IMDA’s governance testing framework and software toolkit.
