Chief Scientist Skourides selected to join prestigious US AI programme

Chief Scientist of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Skourides has been selected to join the U.S. Department of State and Atlantic Council Artificial Intelligence (AI) Connect II programme.

As noted in a recent U.S. Embassy Cyprus Facebook post congratulating Skourides, “This program aims to foster responsible stewardship of AI technologies and empower global participation in AI policy discussions. The Chief Scientist's participation will contribute to advancing responsible AI technologies worldwide.”

According to the US Department of State, AI Connect II is designed to encourage the responsible stewardship of AI technologies in line with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) AI Principles and empower low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to participate more effectively in global, multi-stakeholder conversations on AI policy.

AI Connect II brings together a cohort of 150 policymakers, academics, practitioners, and other private sector representatives from selected countries to engage with subject matter experts, a Department Media Note states.

It adds that the Atlantic Council will work with participants to support their country’s efforts to develop robust AI strategies, foster meaningful connections between individuals working in the same region on responsible AI development, and bring their voices to international forums to enable more inclusive global conversations.

The Atlantic Council is a nonpartisan organisation that, according to its website, galvanizes US global leadership and engagement in partnership with allies and partners.
