    • Technology

Southeast Asia has historically been consumers of technology instead of providers. This often  leaves the region at a disadvantage in adapting to and governing the technologies that it needs for growth, such as artificial intelligence (AI).

In this episode of Pretty Good Podcast, AI researcher Dr. Jun-E Tan expounds on her 2021 research with EngageMedia on AI governance in Southeast Asia, emphasising the importance of contextualising this technology based on what the region needs. Jun-E also discusses the need for Southeast Asian countries to look at existing mechanisms that are within their control, and how these can be used to govern AI technology in ways that protect their people.
