In 2019, Dr. Mirjana Stankovic, TIV Vice President of Emerging Technologies and Intellectual Property (IP), was invited as one of seven keynote speakers at the Symposium on Artificial Intelligence for Science, Industry and Society a week-long event at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico City. The international symposium featured an exclusive gathering of some of the world’s greatest minds from academia and industry, including leaders from Google, IBM, CERN, Huawei and universities including the University of Geneva, the University of Milan and Caltech. The event addressed a spectrum of topics in the relation to 4th Industrial Revolution technologies, including reinforcement learning, natural language processing, the future of data analytics, algorithmic game theory and quantum and classical algorithms for deep learning and AI. In addition, policy aspects of AI implementation, in addition to ethical and social issues were explored, such as security, safety, privacy and the development of regulatory tools to address needs related to digitalization. In particular, Dr. Stankovic’s presentation on “Regulating Emerging Technologies: Opportunities and Challenges for Latin America” highlighted regulatory challenges and described the fundamental questions policymakers must address, i.e.: Preregulatory: What policies are in place now?; Testing and Evaluation: When do we regulate?; Regulatory Approach: How to Regulate?; Revisit: What do we change?)

In navigating the unchartered waters of the impending digital era, Dr. Stankovic provided a set of principles for regulatory guidance. The principles include:

  1. Adaptive Regulation

  2. Regulatory sandboxes

  3. Outcome-based regulation

  4. Risk-weighted regulation
