    The accelerating pace of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) has revealed a total mismatch between existing national and international governmental approaches and what is needed for effective ethical/legal oversight.  Furthermore, AI, nanotechnologies, and biotechnology will not affect just one sector such as transportation or health care, but are platforms upon which a vast array of applications can be development. What new agile and more comprehensive approaches for technology governance can be developed?  What role will governments, industry, non-governmental organizations, research laboratories and researchers play in the governance of emerging technologies?  This presentations will outline a new approach to technology governance and how innovative international mechanisms are being developed for the ethical/legal oversight of AI.
