The Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (Privacy Commissioner), Ms Ada CHUNG Lai-ling, gave a keynote speech at the Ethics in Artificial Intelligence Research Initiative for the Asia Pacific Regional Roundtable co-organised by Facebook and the Centre for Civil Society and Governance (CCSG) of The University of Hong Kong on 10 September 2021. In her speech, the Privacy Commissioner discussed the governance of artificial intelligence (AI) and elaborated on the “Guidance on the Ethical Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence” recently published by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD).
To support the research on AI ethics in the Asia Pacific Region, Facebook partnered with CCSG to invite academic institutions, think tanks and research organisations for research proposals in 2019, and awarded outstanding proposals with research grants. The PCPD participated in the assessment of the research proposals. More than 50 proposals across the region were received and eight winning proposals were selected. The Roundtable aimed to provide a platform for the winners to present and discuss their preliminary research findings.
