Make it easier for experts to attend conferences
Don’t let the name fool you: In the field of so-called artificial intelligence, real people need to share real knowledge to advance this rapidly developing technology. And an organization working on collaboration in AI is making the case that those people need to be able to cross borders to meet in person.
The Partnership on AI (PAI) this week called on governments around the world to create a new class of visa for experts in artificial intelligence and machine learning so they can easily attend conferences wherever they’re held. In a new policy paper, the partnership wrote: "PAI believes that bringing together experts from countries around the world that represent different cultures, socio-economic experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives is essential for AI/ML to flourish and help create the future we desire. In order to fulfill their talent goals and host conferences of international caliber, countries around the world will need to devise laws, policies, and practices that enable people around the world to contribute to these conversations."
PAI said the policy recommendations were “developed to help advance the mobility of innovative global AI/ML talent from a variety of disciplines” but added that they “are in no way intended to minimize or replace opportunities for those affected by the ongoing immigration discussions and policymakers’ actions.”
