Thailand: ETDA pushes use of AI governance guidelines by executives

The Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) issued, on August 28, 2023, a press release detailing recent efforts to push the adoption of the AI Governance Guidelines for Executives, developed by the ETDA's Artificial Intelligence Governance Clinic (AIGC). Specifically, the Guidelines are divided into three sections, covering artificial intelligence (AI) governance structure, strategy, and operation and include examples and best practices drawing from domestic and international standards.

The ETDA noted that it had organized an event inviting representatives from the healthcare, financial, and government sectors to exchange views in order to encourage the actual adoption of the Guidelines by organizations. In this regard, the ETDA detailed that the meeting aimed to set the direction for the use of AI, including in relation to the laws and regulations that should be adopted in the future in relation to each sector in order to create consistent practices.

Moreover, the ETDA highlighted that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mahidol University to pilot the application of the Guidelines in the medical industry.
