ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

Dr. Yacine Jernite currently leads the ML and Society team at Hugging Face, working on ML systems governance at the intersection of regulatory and technical tools. Their work to date has focused on language and multimodal models and data curation, documentation, and governance, including as co-organizer and data area chair for the BigScience workshop on large language models.
Our blog series with the Montreal AI Ethics Institute provides a good overview of the various governance efforts within the BigScience project. I also recommend the following paper on the workshop's organization. While the main BigScience project has been over since the beginning of 2023, it inspired the follow-up project BigCode - you can read more about governance and social questions within the project in its Governance Card.
