Intergovernmental Negotiations on the draft Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence
The Intergovernmental special committee of technical and legal experts meets in April and June 2021 to examine the draft text of the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
At its 40th session in November 2019, UNESCO’s General Conference decided to develop an international standard-setting instrument on the ethics of AI, in the form of a recommendation. Since then, UNESCO has led a multidisciplinary, multicultural and pluralist effort to produce a preliminary report and a first draft of the Recommendation, shared with Member States in September 2020 for their comments. These written comments were taken into consideration by the Director-General when preparing her final report on the Recommendation, containing the draft of the Recommendation on the Ethics of AI.
