UNESCO and Netherlands design AI supervision project for the EU

1 Min Read

The United Nations and the Dutch government announced plans for the creation of a framework for the ethical supervision of artificial intelligence (AI).

On Oct. 5 the Dutch Authority for Digital Infrastructure and the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially launched the project called, “Supervising AI by Competent Authorities,” through which they will assemble data on the ways in which European countries supervise AI.

The project has financial support via the European Commission’s Technical Support Instrument (TSI) and information collected by the project will result in a list of “best practice”- type recommendations.

Gabriela Ramos, the assistant director-general for social and human science of UNESCO, said this discussion is not a technological one, but rather a societal one.

Along with best practices, the information gathered will assist in the creation of future training sessions to improve “institutional capacity” on the topic.

UNESCO has already played a large role in creating ethical guidelines for AI in November 2021, which all of its member states adopted.
