Global Efforts to Regulate AI: A Step Toward Responsible Development and Deployment

The US Ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, announced today that all 193 members of the UN General Assembly have unanimously agreed to take control of artificial intelligence (AI) 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.

Last November, the US, UK, and several other countries unveiled an international agreement on protecting AI from counterfeiting. Europe has taken the lead in regulating AI, with EU lawmakers adopting a temporary agreement this month. In the US, the Biden administration has urged lawmakers to regulate AI, but progress 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 provides a set of principles to guide the development and use of AI in the future. 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 responsible development and deployment of artificial intelligence technologies.
