The UN Security Council discusses the dangers of AI

The United Nations Security Council has discussed the threat of artificial intelligence (AI). There has been a debate about the regulation of AI technology as it can affect international peace and stability.


UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said that international regulators should pay attention to the regulation of new technologies.

Guterres said that regulation of AI is necessary because it facilitates crime and terrorism. “If AI can facilitate crime and terrorism, it can wreak havoc and create massive psychological terror,” he said.

Last year, along with the launch of chat GPiti, various AIs that imitate voice and create photos and videos were released. There is also a growing concern that false information will be supported by such AI.

The UN Security Council meeting discussed the scientific and social benefits and implications of AI technology.

This technology is developing rapidly. It’s like we’re building an engine without understanding the science of exploitation’, says Jack Clarke, co-founder of AI security company, ‘AI manufacturers should not be its regulators.’

Secretary General Guterres said that the United Nations should advance the work for the regulation of AI as well as for the regulation of nuclear weapons and the environment.

There has also been an opinion that technical experts who have worked in government administration should be included in it. But there is also a voice about the challenge of AI that should be kept as a regulator only because of technical efficiency.

A binding legal path to AI regulation does not appear to be an immediate possibility. Most of the diplomats have pointed out the need for international standards for this.

British Foreign Secretary James Cleverley said, ‘No country is immune to AI. Therefore, there is a need for international law and cooperation for its regulation.’

Russia is of the opinion that the argument that AI will affect international security and peace is not valid. On the other hand, Zhang Zhou, the Chinese representative for the United Nations, expressed a different opinion on the proposal to make a law for the regulation of AI.

The regulatory body of the United Nations held the opinion that the laws of the respective countries should be respected and the laws of the respective countries should be implemented regarding AI. “China also opposes the policy of using AI technology to maintain military dominance,” he said.

Similarly, there was a debate about automatic weapons powered by AI technology. There was also a debate about Israel’s murder of Mosen Fakhrizahed, a prominent nuclear scientist of Iran, using such technology.

Professor Rebecca Willett, who participated in the debate, said, ‘International law is needed to ensure that one country does not violate international law for its own interests and wreak havoc on another country.’
