What’s the news: Council Chair India called fellow member states of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) yesterday to develop a common data governance framework to ensure the safety of the Internet and AI, and prevent user harm. “We all should be concerned about user harm.

Current members include the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand, and South Korea.
