Participants at Global UNESCO Conference on Artificial Intelligence urge rights-based governance of AI

A clear consensus emerged on the need to ensure a human-centred governance of artificial intelligence (AI) during UNESCO’s Principles for AI: Towards a Humanistic Approach? Global Conference on 4 March at the Organization’s Headquarters.

As she opened the Conference, UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said, “The issues raised by artificial intelligence are not technological. They concern our own humanity, raising scientific, political, philosophical and ethical questions.”

Ms Azoulay declared that “the time is more than ripe to define the ethical principles that must serve as a foundation and framework of this disruption; to ensure that AI serves collective choices, based on humanist values.”
