The Presidio Recommendations on Responsible Generative AI

World Economic Forum and AI Commons have jointly published a report on Responsible Generative AI.

Generative artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform industries and society by boosting innovation and empowering individuals across diverse fields, from arts to scientific research. To ensure a positive future, it is crucial to prioritize responsible design and release practices from the beginning. As generative AI continues to advance at an unprecedented pace, the need for collaboration among stakeholders to ensure that AI serves as a force for good has become increasingly urgent.

On 26-28 April 2023, the summit “Responsible AI Leadership: A Global Summit on Generative AI” took place at the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution based in the Presidio in San Francisco, USA. The event was hosted by the Forum in partnership with AI Commons to guide technical experts and policy-makers on the responsible development and governance of generative AI systems.

The summit emphasized the importance of open innovation and international collaboration as essential enablers
for responsible generative AI. The focus was on moving beyond insightful discussions to generate actionable and practical recommendations for various AI stakeholders that could significantly influence the design, construction and deployment of generative AI.

Over 100 AI thought leaders and practitioners participated in the summit, including chief scientific officers, responsible AI and ethics leads, academic leaders, AI entrepreneurs, policy-makers, tech investors and members of civil society. Participants engaged in discussions on numerous aspects of generative AI’s design, development, release and societal impact, and deliberated on key recommendations. These recommendations emerged from interactive panel discussions and working sessions through a bottom-up process, with participants reaching consensus on critical areas related to the governance of generative AI.

This summary presents a set of 30 action-oriented recommendations aimed at guiding generative AI towards meaningful human progress. The recommendations address three key themes that cover the entire life cycle of generative AI: responsible development and release; open innovation and international collaboration; and social progress.

By implementing these recommendations, stakeholders can navigate the complexities of AI development and harness its potential responsibly and ethically. Join us in shaping a more innovative, equitable and prosperous future that leverages the power of generative AI and mitigate its risks to benefit all.
