Global Efforts to Regulate Artificial Intelligence: Unanimous Agreement and International Agreement on Safeguarding AI

United Nations makes decision to combat risks of artificial intelligence

The international community is making strides to regulate the development and deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. In an effort to prevent AI from controlling human society, all 193 members of the UN General Assembly have unanimously agreed to take control of AI. 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 US, UK, and several other countries took the lead in protecting AI from counterfeiting last November by unveiling an international agreement on safeguarding AI. Europe has also been at the forefront of regulating AI, with EU lawmakers adopting a temporary agreement this month. The Biden administration in the US has urged lawmakers to regulate AI, but progress has been slow due to political polarization.

In October, the White House issued a new executive order 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. However, negotiations faced opposition from countries like Russia and China who are exploring the use of AI for various purposes. Despite objections from these countries, the international community is working towards creating a framework for responsible development and deployment of AI technologies.
