Artificial intelligence and advanced technologies present important new opportunities that enable novel solutions to enduring societal challenges. Yet they also produce significant risks.

As awareness of these challenges intensifies, there is a growing call for the examination of ethical risks and societal impacts of artificial intelligence and advanced technologies, and the development of responsible digital transformation practices across sectors. Government and corporate departments dedicated to the study of ethics and technology are springing forward, as are scholarly contributions including new academic journals and degree programs. These responses are all crucial to getting ahead of the rapid technological changes underway. Few, however, link industry and academic expertise, and include globally diverse perspectives and experiences. GAEIA bridges this gap with…
