UNESCO calls on all Governments to implement Global Ethical Framework without delay

UNESCO is concerned by many of the ethical issues raised by artificial intelligence particularly discrimination and stereotyping, including gender inequality, disinformation, the right to privacy, the protection of personal data, human and environmental rights.

UNESCO’s Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence is a global framework for the ethical use of artificial intelligence. It guides countries on how to maximize the benefits of AI and reduce the risks it entails. To this end, it contains values and principles, but also detailed policy recommendations in all relevant areas.

Industry self-regulation is clearly not sufficient to avoid these ethical harms, which is why UNESCO’s Recommendation provides the tools to ensure that AI developments abide by the rule of law, avoid harm, and ensure that when harm is done, accountability and mechanisms for redress are available to those affected.
