Knowledge, Learning, Community

The first section of the report (48 page PDF) outlines how generative AI works and has a really nice listing of the products and capabilities currently available. The second section, discussing issues, focuses mostly on social harms, such as "AI-generated content polluting the Internet" and "reducing the diversity of opinions and further marginalizing already marginalized voices." The third section offers a step-by-step recommendation for regulation of AI and outlines responsibilities of stakeholders. Section 4 discusses steps needed to develop a policy framwork on AI, including monitoring and capacity-building. It then, in the 5th section, looks at the "creative" uses of AI in research and education, insisting on a human-centered approach. Finally, in the last section, it takes a brief look at generativce AI and the future of education and research. All in all, this as good a document on the subject as any I've seen, and is recommended.
