Artificial intelligence (AI) has slowly marked its presence in the tech world. Alongside its rise, the potential threats AI possesses are also surfacing. To discuss this issue on a global scale, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has scheduled a meeting today.
The foreign secretary of the United Kingdom (UK), James Cleverly, will be chairing this discussion today, where the influence of AI on global peace and security will be the primary issue.
As AI possesses the capability of reshaping the global economy, governments around the world are keen to understand the threats it can pose. The International Security Council as a whole can be replaced by this technology.
In June this year, the secretary general of the United Nations, António Guterres, approved the proposal to create an agency that works as a regulatory body to monitor AI. The UN is considering setting up a new agency to deal with the challenges new technology poses.
