· 3.2 Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education

Current and future workers need to be prepared with the necessary education and training to help them succeed. We recognize that delivering training is critical and will require significant investment, not only in STEM education, but also in understanding human behavior via the humanities and social sciences. To ensure employability of the workforce of the future, the public and private sectors should work together to design and deliver work based learning and training systems, and advance approaches that provide students with real work experiences and concrete skills. In conjunction, prioritizing diversity and inclusion in STEM fields, and in the AI community specifically, will be a key part in ensuring AI develops in the most robust way possible.

• Foster Innovation and Open Development

To better understand the impact of AI and explore the broad diversity of AI implementations, public policy should encourage investment in AI R&D. Governments should support the controlled testing of AI systems to help industry, academia, and other stakeholders improve the technology. [Recommendations] • Fuel AI innovation: Public policy should promote investment, make available funds for R&D, and address barriers to AI development and adoption. • Address global societal challenges: AI powered flagship initiatives should be funded to find solutions to the world’s greatest challenges such as curing cancer, ensuring food security, controlling climate change, and achieving inclusive economic growth. • Allow for experimentation: Governments should create the conditions necessary for the controlled testing and experimentation of AI in the real world, such as designating self driving test sites in cities. • Prepare a workforce for AI: Governments should create incentives for students to pursue courses of study that will allow them to create the next generation of AI. • Lead by example: Governments should lead the way on demonstrating the applications of AI in its interactions with citizens and invest sufficiently in infrastructure to support and deliver AI based services. • Partnering for AI: Governments should partner with industry, academia, and other stakeholders for the promotion of AI and debate ways to maximize its benefits for the economy.

· Awareness and literacy

44. Public awareness and understanding of AI technologies and the value of data should be promoted through open and accessible education, civic engagement, digital skills and AI ethics training, media and information literacy and training led jointly by governments, intergovernmental organizations, civil society, academia, the media, community leaders and the private sector, and considering the existing linguistic, social and cultural diversity, to ensure effective public participation so that all members of society can take informed decisions about their use of AI systems and be protected from undue influence. 45. Learning about the impact of AI systems should include learning about, through and for human rights and fundamental freedoms, meaning that the approach and understanding of AI systems should be grounded by their impact on human rights and access to rights, as well as on the environment and ecosystems.

8. Prepare children for present and future developments in AI

Develop and update formal and informal education programmes globally to include technical and soft skills needed to flourish in an AI world, including in the future workplace. Consider a national self assessment for teachers to assess and then develop their AI awareness and skills. Leverage the use of AI systems in education, when it is appropriate. Facilitate and encourage collaboration between businesses and educational institutions. Develop and promote awareness campaigns for parents, caregivers and society as a whole.
