Launched in June 2020, GPAI is a multi-stakeholder international initiative that brings together leading experts from science, industry, civil society, international organizations and government.
This year, the GPAI annual summit, led by Inria, will take place in Paris on November 11 and 12, and Inria Chile will organize the “AI in Latin America” side event.
A thought on the AI of tomorrow in the international community

Likewise, additional sessions will be held with international experts on AI and Earth Observation, AI and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Regulation of AI and AI in Latin America.
