The "AI Governance & Ethics in Asia and Around the World" master course, held in the vibrant city of Singapore, is a comprehensive program designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to navigate the complex landscape of AI governance, ethics, policymaking, and regulation. The course brings together students, professionals, and experts available in Singapore to foster a deep understanding of AI governance practices and challenges in different regions, with a strong focus on the rapidly evolving AI ecosystems in Asia.

The first part of the course focuses on understanding the fundamental principles of AI governance and the various ethical, legal, and social issues surrounding its development and deployment. Participants will delve into topics such as data privacy, algorithmic fairness, AI safety, and the impacts of AI on employment and society. The course will also address the role of international collaborations, the role of corporations as quasi-political actors, and the need for a coordinated global response to establish common AI governance standards and best practices. As this is a rapidly evolving field, we will closely look into the regulatory aspects that are developed around generative AI.

The latter part of the program explores AI governance approaches, case studies, and lessons learned from leading countries and organizations around the world. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on workshops, simulations, and group discussions, facilitating the development of practical strategies for implementing robust AI governance frameworks in their own contexts. By the end of the course, participants will be equipped with a thorough understanding of the global AI governance landscape with an emphasis on Asia and the ability to design and implement tailored AI governance strategies, policies, and regulations to ensure responsible AI development and deployment.
