UNESCO's AI Draft Recommendation Is Available for Public Comment

UNESCO introduced “a global online consultation on the ethics of artificial intelligence, to give everyone around the world the opportunity to participate in the work of its international group of experts on AI. This group has been charged with producing the first draft of a Recommendation on the Ethics of AI, to be submitted to UNESCO Member States for adoption in November 2021. If adopted, it will be the first global normative instrument to address the developments and applications of AI.”

This draft UNESCO Recommendation is available for comment until July 31, 2020, by civil society organizations, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, media representatives, the scientific community, and other stakeholders, as well as the general public.

“It is crucial that as many people as possible take part in this consultation, so that voices from around the world can be heard during the drafting process for the first global normative instrument on the ethics of AI,” says Audrey Azoulay, director-general of UNESCO.
