United Nations General Secretary, Antonio Guterres, has announced the establishment of a 39-member advisory board to address issues surrounding the global governance of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The board will comprise tech company leaders, government officials from nations ranging from Spain to Saudi Arabia, and academics from countries including the USA, Russia, and Japan.

Representatives also hail from six continents, with diverse members such as the American AI specialist Vilas Dara, Professor Ji Zeng from China, and Egyptian lawyer Mohamed Farahat.
