UN General Assembly To Address AI’s Potential Risks

The UN General Assembly will turn its attention to artificial intelligence weighing a resolution that lays out the potentially transformational technology’s pros and cons. This is while calling for the establishment of international standards.

The text, co-sponsored by dozens of countries, emphasizes the necessity of guidelines. This is “to promote safe, secure and trustworthy artificial intelligence systems,” while excluding military AI from its purview.

On the whole, the resolution focuses more on the technology’s positive potential. It also calls for special care “to bridge the artificial intelligence and other digital divides between and within countries.” The draft resolution, which is the first on the issue, was brought forth by the United States and will be submitted for approval by the UN General Assembly on Thursday.

It also seeks “to promote, not hinder, digital transformation and equitable access” to AI. This is in order to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to ensure a better future for humanity by 2030.

According to Richard Gowan, an analyst at the International Crisis Group, “the emphasis on development is a deliberate effort by the US to win goodwill among poorer nations.”

“It is easier to talk about how AI can help developing countries progress rather than tackle security and safety topics head-on as a first initiative,” he said.
