The UNESCO recommendation for continuous assessment of the impact of AI technologies to be carried out across a range of dimensions, such as the UN SDGs, informs the creation of the panel purposed to share their evidence, experiences and concerns regarding AI implementation in the context of human rights implications, anticipatory & adaptive governance, responsible innovation and youth engagement and participation, in minority groups and overlooked communities typically found in the Global South. The aim is to develop a more in-depth understanding of how some of the UN SDGs, which are most relevant in the Global South, can be achieved through the application of responsible AI.

The panel seeks to uncover opportunities for bidirectional and trans-disciplinary exchanges between industry, government, academia and civil society that prioritises lay input. Public participation is essential for desirable and sustainable socio-technological futures. To achieve this ideal, the panel advances the use of the Quadruple Helix Model to develop and launch a science and AI collaboration by demonstrating its mechanisms and activities, thereby achieving sustainability objectives.

The QH-Model offers the most viable public-participatory approach to enabling policy, regulatory and financial environments that are needed to implement and sustain the science mechanisms required to support genuinely global scientific collaborations across continents, nations and themes.
With its focus on societal actors and individual laypersons, the quadruple helix model provides optimised delivery of scientific benefit that is more welcoming and sustainable, particularly as concerns the impact that AI will have on society.

The QH-Model enables the facilitation of at least two public engagement approaches:
1. Living Labs approach incorporating QH-actors (people’s) ideas, experiences and knowledge that
promote ethics-by-design in AI technology
2. Service design that improves the acceptability and desirability for responsible AI that delivers
societal benefit.
