Abstract: In 2019 we saw the beginnings of tech last. Perhaps unfairly, as it was not always at the heart of what was being protested, AI took centre stage. In 2020, we have seen this come back, despite the pandemic, in objections to COVID apps, A level announcements and the new documentary on Netflix, The Social Dilemma, is bound to fuel the fire. So, how do we secure the use of AI for Good to avoid losing its benefits? Can we achieve global governance for AI and if not what can we do?

The Center for Intelligent Systems at EPFL (CIS) is a collaboration among IC, SB, and STI that brings together researchers working on different aspects of Intelligent Systems. In June 2020, CIS has launched its CIS Colloquia featuring invited notable speakers.
