The white paper, endorsed by Google’s DeepMind, addresses the need for international governance structures to manage the global impact of advanced AI.

It discusses the specific benefits and risks that need to be managed internationally, the governance functions required, and the organisations that can provide those functions.

The paper explores four potential institutional models: an intergovernmental Commission on Frontier AI, an intergovernmental or multistakeholder Advanced AI Governance Organisation, a Frontier AI Collaborative, and an AI Safety Project. The paper also highlights the operational challenges that these models may face.
