UN Unanimously Approves Global Framework for Responsible AI Development and Deployment

United Nations makes decision to combat risks of artificial intelligence

In a major development, US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield announced today that all 193 members of the UN General Assembly had unanimously agreed to take control of artificial intelligence to prevent it from controlling human society. This decision is part of a global effort to monitor the development of AI technologies and mitigate potential risks such as disruptions to democratic processes, fraud, and job losses.

The move comes after several countries, including the US and UK, took steps to protect AI from counterfeiting last November. Europe has also been at the forefront of regulating AI, with EU lawmakers adopting a temporary agreement this month. However, progress in the US has been slow due to political polarization.

In an effort to reduce risks associated with AI, the White House issued a new executive order in October aimed at protecting consumers, workers, and minorities while enhancing national security. The decision, which took almost four months to negotiate, provides a set of principles to guide the development and use of AI in the future.

While negotiations faced opposition from countries like Russia and China, the US administration engaged in discussions to address differing views. Despite objections from China and Russia, who are exploring the use of AI for various purposes, the international community is working towards creating a framework for the responsible development and deployment of artificial intelligence technologies.
