A Human-Centric Artificial Intelligence

Read:The Call

Rome, February 28th. The Pontifical Academy for Life, Microsoft, IBM, FAO, the Italia Government, signed as first  the “Call for an AI Ethics”, a document developed to support an ethical approach to Artificial Intelligence and promote a sense of responsibility among organizations, governments and institutions with the aim to create a future in which digital innovation and technological progress serve human genius and creativity and not their gradual replacement

Three Principles:

Ethics – All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.

Education – Transforming the world through the innovation of AI means undertaking to build a future for and with younger generations.

Rights – The development of AI in the service of humankind and the planet must be reflected in regulations and principles that protect people – particularly the weak and the underprivileged – and natural environments.

Why FAO?

AI-based technology must never be used to exploit people in any way, especially those who are most vulnerable. Instead, it must be used to help people develop their abilities (empowerment/enablement) and to support the planet.

Ethics: it must be mindful of the complex reality of our ecosystem and be characterised by the way in which it cares for and protects the planet (our “common and shared home”) with a highly sustainable approach, which also includes the use of artificial intelligence in ensuring sustainable food systems in the future.
