About SAI20 Conference
Under the guiding philosophy of India’s G20 Chairmanship Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India had proposed collaboration of the SAI 20 Engagement Group on two priority areas – Blue Economy and Accountable Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Marine (blue) economy is the sustainable use of marine resources for economic growth, better livelihoods and jobs while preserving the health of our ecosystems. Where AI is making more inroads in governance, SAI should mandatorily prepare itself for auditing AI based governance systems. At the same time, SAI should explore opportunities to adopt AI in its auditing techniques to increase its effectiveness.
In line with this, during the SAI20 conference, SAI India will introduce and implement addendums on Ocean Economy and Responsible AI. It features contributions and experience shared by SAI20 members and other SAIs to guide future audits on these priority areas. Eminent panelists will further share knowledge and experiences while providing insights on the ocean economy and responsible AI. Importantly, the role and responsibilities of the SAI 20 Engagement Group will be agree upon in the strategic partnership with governments going forward to promote accountability in governance and respond to global challenges.
