Published: 2024-06-27

Welcome to today’s edition of our daily news digest. We will talk about how artificial intelligence (AI) and open data are changing our world. From education and farming to public safety and economic growth, AI is making big changes. These changes come with both good and bad sides that we need to handle carefully.

In countries like India, Papua New Guinea, and Kenya, AI is changing education, farming, and conservation. The World Bank says AI can create new jobs and improve many sectors. But, we must think about ethics, data quality, and the digital divide to make sure everyone benefits fairly. The power of AI in these places shows why it is important to manage this technology responsibly.

AI is also changing public safety. It helps automate tasks, analyze data, and make decisions. Big data and AI give strong tools to law enforcement and emergency response teams. Predictive analytics and AI help find crime trends, allocate resources, and improve crisis communication. This leads to better decision-making and accountability. Governments around the world are investing in these technologies to improve emergency response systems.

The Welsh government wants more people to speak Welsh by 2050. They have teamed up with OpenAI to improve AI technologies for the Welsh language. They are working on tools like speech-to-text and machine translation. OpenAI is also creating open-source datasets to understand different languages and cultures. They encourage public input to advance Welsh-language technology, showing how AI can help preserve cultural heritage.

Copyright issues in AI-generated content are becoming more clear, especially in China. Deciding who owns the rights to AI-generated content is tricky and needs clear laws. Better legal frameworks, shared responsibility, and data-sharing platforms are needed to support AI creation. Balancing protection and innovation is key for the future of AI-generated content.

Gulf Edge and Google Cloud are working together to offer cloud services in Thailand. They focus on data security and privacy. This partnership aims to help industries like healthcare and energy with AI and analytics. It will boost digital transformation in Thailand and create new opportunities. Advanced AI features and secure data handling are important parts of this plan.

The global economic outlook for 2024 is positive. AI is expected to boost the economy and labor productivity. North America and China will benefit a lot from AI investments. Microsoft plays a big role in advancing AI technologies. By the end of 2024, the United States is expected to be the largest economy, driven by consumer spending and government policies.

Open data means making data available for everyone to use without restrictions. Governments and organizations release datasets on various platforms to ensure transparency and accessibility. For example, the European Union’s Open Data Portal and the U.S. government’s Data.gov offer many datasets covering health, environment, and economy. These platforms promote innovation and informed decision-making.

People should know about open data because it fosters transparency, accountability, and innovation. Public trust is crucial for the success of these initiatives. When people believe data is used responsibly, they support open data projects. On the other hand, mistrust can hinder these initiatives.

The Open Data Barometer report shows how public perception affects open data success in different countries. In the UK, positive public perception and strong government support led to successful projects. In countries with low public trust in government, open data faced challenges and had limited impact.

In conclusion, AI and open data are changing many sectors and regions. It is important to ensure ethical use, fair access, and strong legal frameworks. Together, we can use AI and open data to create a better world for future generations.

Stay informed and empowered.
