Kuwait's delegate to the UNESCO Dr. Adam Al-Mulla moderated today's virtual session of the UNESCO intergovernmental special committee meeting of technical and legal experts meeting.
In statements to KUNA, Al-Mulla noted the experts meeting is held during the period from April 26 to April 30.
He pointed out that the technical and legal experts would convene again next June to negotiate and endorse a final draft of the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The approved text will be submitted to member states for the adoption by the UNESCO General Conference at its 41st session in November 2021, he elaborated.
Al-Mulla stated that the UNESCO efforts to write and negotiate an international code of ethics for artificial intelligence had begun in November 2019.
According to the UNESCO, these efforts aim to find international and national policies and regulatory frameworks to ensure that artificial intelligence technologies benefit humanity as a whole.
It stressed that the world needs a human-centered artificial intelligence to be used for the greater interest of the people, not the other way around.
