UNESCO & 8 Tech Giants Sign Ethical AI Agreement

An agreement has been reached between UNESCO and eight global technology companies, focusing on artificial intelligence. This agreement imposes certain responsibilities on technology companies regarding “ethical artificial intelligence.”

Technologies driven by artificial intelligence have sparked debate since their inception. While some argue that these technologies could diminish the workforce, others raise concerns about personal data. In response, regulatory bodies have taken various measures to safeguard humanity from the potential risks of artificial intelligence.

Adding to these efforts, a memorandum of understanding was signed between eight globally operating technology companies and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). This agreement has led technology companies to commit to adhering to the ethical framework established by UNESCO.
