UN Takes Stand on AI: US Leads Adoption of Landmark Global Resolution

- Advertisement -
  • The UN General Assembly unanimously approved an AI ethics resolution that the United States had introduced and that 123 countries, including China, had supported.
  • Human rights, data privacy, legal frameworks, and digital divide reduction are stressed in the resolution.

The UN General Assembly’s unanimous passage of a resolution addressing the worldwide regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) is a significant step forward.

This resolution, which the United States led and which 123 nations, including China, supported, represents a turning point in the global effort to maximize the positive aspects of artificial intelligence while minimizing its potential drawbacks.

Previously, China had planned to tighten crypto laws by revising the AML law in 2025, according to ETHNews.

Ethical AI: Preserving Data Privacy and Human Rights

The resolution, which was approved on March 2, emphasizes how important it is to safeguard human rights and privacy as artificial intelligence advances and is applied. It represents a common concern that AI would lead to enormous unemployment, worsen fraud, and undermine democratic norms, among other things.

Though generally advisory in nature, this resolution serves as a powerful representation of the global agreement on artificial intelligence. Encouraging the development of ethical and safe regulatory frameworks for AI developments represents a global commitment to the responsible advancement of AI.

Most importantly, the resolution works to close the technological divide and empower disadvantaged countries with AI. To ensure inclusive development, it provides these nations with the resources and knowledge to employ AI in healthcare and agriculture.

This initiative is in line with a more comprehensive international agreement that prominent nations like the US and the UK developed in November. This agreement outlines strategies for preventing the misuse of AI and emphasizes the importance of incorporating security features into AI systems.

The resolution also cautions against AI systems that are purposely destructive, poorly constructed, lack safety protections, or breach international standards. The IT sector supports AI regulation, but they are striving to ensure that it aligns with their business models.

Regulations to Come: The Road to Safe AI Systems

Additionally, the European Union recently ratified the first comprehensive AI legislation, a historic step that will see it come into effect by the middle of the year. These rules, which outlaw specific AI uses such as predictive policing and biometric surveillance, have the potential to redefine AI governance.

In the meantime, the US has advanced. Last October, the White House issued an executive order to combat AI dangers and boost national security. This directive promotes ethical and safe AI development worldwide by protecting consumers, workers, and minorities from AI’s potential harm.
