Regulating and governing AI will remain a challenge due to the inherent intricacy of how AI is deployed and used in practice. Regulation effectiveness and efficiency are inversely proportional to system complexity and the clarity of objectives: the more complicated an area is and the harder objectives are to operationalize, the more difficult it is...

Widespread acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines is crucial for achieving sufficient immunization coverage to end the global pandemic, yet few studies have investigated COVID-19 vaccination attitudes in lower-income countries, where large-scale vaccination is just beginning. We analyze COVID-19 vaccine acceptance across 15 survey samples covering 10 low-...

Background As vaccination campaigns are deployed worldwide, addressing vaccine hesitancy is of critical importance to ensure sufficient immunization coverage. We analyzed COVID-19 vaccine acceptance across 15 samples covering ten low- and middle- income countries (LMICs) in Asia, Africa, and South America, and two higher income countries (Russia an...

... Open access acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines, in particular, may be high in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs), [12][13][14] this may not be the case in Guatemala. Previous international research with Indigenous populations has found numerous potential barriers to vaccines, including (1) fears of side effects, 15 16 (2) language barriers, 17 18 (3) systemic and historical health inequities, [19][20][21][22] (4) vaccine misinformation and myths, 14 20 23-25 and (5) variable supply and availability. ...
... The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to disrupt daily life until an effective vaccine is widely accepted. There is growing global concern about vaccine hesitancy-the widespread reluctance to take safe and recommended vaccines [1,2].

... A survey of the US population in April 2021 has found a mixed-level of support for using VCs: 53% of Americans expressed support for government-issued vaccine passports, while 47% reported being against the use of vaccine certificates [68]. Although the Brookings Institute's report [76] outlining principles to build robust and ethical vaccination verification systems is an important contribution, nevertheless, comprehensive and rigorous academic research to supplement such contributions with insights on attitudes and conditions of acceptance behind potential support for the use of VCs is much needed. ...
