WGIC launches its next report, "Geospatial AI/ML Applications and Policies – A Global Perspective."

The global report aims to inform both governments and industry alike on the GeoAI Trends for the near-term, mid-term, and long-term. Also, it reviews the laws and policies on AI governance in the most technologically advanced markets and provides recommendations on policy principles for industry and governments.

Amersfoort, The Netherlands, April 13, 2021 – Today, the World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) launched its next global report titled " Geospatial AI/ML (GeoAI) Applications and Policies – A Global Perspective." The report launch took place at the "AI for Good" virtual event hosted by WGIC Partner Organization International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The GeoAI report aims to inform both governments and industry alike on the GeoAI Trends for the near-term (next two years – starting 2021) and mid-term (up to five years) and long-term. Through the inputs from WGIC Member companies and industry experts, the report identifies areas of rapid growth within the geospatial domain that will emerge and evolve with Computer Science & Information Technology's rapid technological developments.

The report also reviews the laws and policies on AI governance in twelve countries and the European Union, providing a global representation by covering the most technologically advanced markets. The report identifies new set of laws for AI governance that will be enacted in major jurisdictions in the coming years to tackle the issues around fairness, explainability, intellectual property, and data privacy.

The report's recommendations include policy principles for the geospatial industry to follow on ethics and privacy so that citizens and policymakers can build trust in the geospatial industry. The report calls for industry cooperation on tests and audits for AI systems, categorizes use-cases by harm levels so that governments can calibrate regulations, and promotes open data and other mechanisms to increase data access for all players to boost innovation. Further, the report advocates governments the need for adaptive GeoAI policies that align with the new normal.

The GeoAI report is an outcome of research and consultative study in collaboration with around fifteen WGIC members working on GeoAI and thirteen external experts. The WGIC member companies who contributed to the report are – Bentley Systems, Ceinsys, Cyient, e-Geos, Esri, Faro, IMGeospatial, Maxar Technologies, Oracle, RIEGL, SI Analytics, Spatial Vision, Terra Analytics, TomTom, and Trimble.

The laws and policies on AI governance from the following countries/ regions is covered under this report – Australia, Brazil, China, European Union, India, Israel, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
