SEE+’s readiness for artificial intelligence
25 SeptemberSep 2020 11:00 - 12:00
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology increasingly deployed by all stakeholders, from algorithms used by social media platforms, to predictive software shaping decisions of public institutions or automation of work. Its impact on citizens and human rights has triggered an interest in the ethics and policy areas too. Currently, major institutions and intergovernmental organisations are looking to understand what are the best approaches that could ensure both a beneficial use for social and economic advancement, as well as a responsible and safe use for all citizens. This session is exploring SEE+’s readiness for using AI-powered technologies and how stakeholders in the region could contribute to other global (regulatory) processes, including the UN Secretary General's Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, OECD, EU or Council of Europe.
