UNESCO is organizing a Virtual National Consultation with Youth in Thailand on the first draft of the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
UNESCO has embarked on a two-year process to elaborate the first global standard-setting instrument on ethics of AI, following the decision of UNESCO’s General Conference at its 40th session in November 2019. An Ad Hoc Expert Group (AHEG) composed of 24 international experts appointed by the Director-General of UNESCO, prepared a first draft of the Recommendation on the Ethics of AI in May 2020.
This virtual national consultation with Youth in Thailand is part of a series of multi-stakeholder consultations to be held around the world from 7 July to 11 August 2020. The main objectives of the consultations are to discuss the first draft text of the Recommendation on the Ethics of AI and seek feedback that reflect different cultural values and address various regional concerns in order to achieve a truly inclusive and pluralist instrument. Youth are particularly impacted by the developments of AI and their voices are crucial in this debate.
The Ad Hoc Expert Group of UNESCO will then review the results of these consultations in September 2020 and produce a final draft text of the Recommendation.
