Video: Challenges and Opportunities for AI Governance in Southeast Asia


From smart devices to targeted advertising and curated newsfeeds, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies is growing in Southeast Asia, home to 463 million internet users who are spending more time in online spaces.

The increased adoption of AI technologies in the region raises questions on AI governance: how do we set rules for the use of AI to protect people against possible harms?

In this video, learn more about the challenges and opportunities that Southeast Asia faces in laying down governance mechanisms for the use of AI. This video draws from the report Governance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Southeast Asia, produced by EngageMedia in partnership with independent researcher Dr Jun-E Tan.

This video is also part of EngageMedia’s larger work documenting the uses and problems of artificial intelligence and its implementation in Southeast Asia.
