A digital society initiative, jointly led by South Korea and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), will officially kick off this week to discuss global governance on artificial intelligence (AI) and digital technologies, the science ministry said Sunday.

The initiative, set to open Monday, will function as a global policy platform aimed at helping OECD members form a digital society for shared prosperity, according to the Ministry of Science and ICT.

The ministry said it plans to introduce the “Digital Bill of Rights,” which revolves around the five principles of freedom, fairness, safety, innovation and solidarity for the establishment of a new digital order, to OECD members of the initiative.

The digital bill of rights was proposed by the South Korean government last year as part of efforts to build an appropriate regulatory system to respond to possible risks deriving from the evolution of AI and digital technologies.
