UNESCO Roundtable on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence

The fourth roundtable on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) “Challenges of AI Ethics and Governance: From Principles to Practice” will be held on 24 February 2022 from 12:00 to 14:00. The roundtable will be held online and will be open to the public. This roundtable will address a number of challenges that the governance of AI triggers from an ethical perspective. These include how to translate the ethical principles into practice; how to measure fairness and equity; and the incentives that may push the private sector to comply with ethical principles such as inclusiveness. You are cordially invited!

This year marks the fourth edition of a series of roundtables launched in 2018 by UNESCO with the support of Japan, with the aim of promoting international dialogue and raising public awareness of the ethical challenges related to Artificial Intelligence. This roundtable will be moderated by Emma Ruttkamp-Bloem, professor and Head of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pretoria, a member of the World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology (COMEST).

Invited panelists are:
Carlos Affonso Souza, Professor of Law at the Rio de Janeiro State University;
