According to the first “Global Index on Responsible AI“, which was launched on June 13th 2024 in Washington, Germany is among the leading countries in the field of “Responsible Artificial Intelligence.” For the Global Center on AI Governance from South Africa, researchers from all over the world evaluated how countries implement ethical and human rights-centered AI principles. Germany performed well in 17 of the 19 areas, reaching second place overall behind the Netherlands.

The report recommends that countries with a lot of implementation knowledge share their experiences with other countries. It advocates more mutual learning and calls for joint efforts to align AI with human rights.

The German national AI strategy has a focus on “International cooperation on AI with emerging nations worldwide” since 2019. The BMZ tasked GIZ’s “FAIR Forward – Artificial Intelligence for All” initiative with promoting ethical and human rights-centered AI worldwide, and using AI to fight poverty, reduce inequalities and strengthen local agriculture.
