Brainstorming UNESCO AI Ethics Recommendations

The General Assembly has adopted, in November 2021, the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence. This document is the first global instrument regulating Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is according to its preamble “a standard-setting instrument developed through a global approach, based on international law, focusing on human dignity and human rights, as well as gender equality, social and economic justice and development, physical and mental well-being, diversity, interconnectedness, inclusiveness, and environmental and ecosystem protection”. It aims at guiding AI technologies conception and use in a responsible direction and intends to provide universal values and principles as regards their development.

You are invited to a 3 hours “brainstorming” session, the April 20, from 13:00 to 16:00 CET, where the guiding ideas of the Recommendation will be presented. This brainstorming will be followed by regional conferences or seminars on specific themes. These regional activities will ensure the original appropriation of the text, taking fully into account the regional context and cultural specificities. Invitation to these regional activities will follow.
