It’s a beautiful family photo. This Thursday in Paris, the 193 member states of Unesco adopted a recommendation giving, for the first time, a normative framework on the ethics of artificial intelligence. The works were not launched yesterday since they go back to the beginning of March 2019. It must be said that granting almost all nations, including China, is a challenge.
“AI technologies can be of great service to humanity” and “all countries can benefit from it”, but “they also raise fundamental ethical concerns”, underlines the 28-page recommendation in its preamble. There is “a need to ensure the transparency and intelligibility of the functioning of the algorithms and the data from which they have been trained”, because they can influence “human rights and fundamental freedoms, equality gender, democracy ”, continues the organization.
