UN Passes First-Ever Artificial Intelligence Resolution

UN Passes First-Ever Artificial Intelligence Resolution

The first global resolution on artificial intelligence (AI) was overwhelmingly accepted by the UN General Assembly on March 24, 2024. The resolution, which is supported by 123 nations—including China, Cuba, and Russia—and the United States is intended to guarantee that the potent new technology is reliable, safe, and secure—while also benefiting all countries and upholding human rights.


Concerns over AI's possible advantages and disadvantages, as well as how it may affect democratic processes, personal data protection, and human rights, have been raised by the technology's quick development. The resolution is the most recent in a line of actions taken by governments worldwide to control the advancement of AI and lessen its possible risks.

Principal Goals

Closing the digital divide between developed and developing nations; ensuring that these nations have the technology and capacity to benefit from artificial intelligence; protecting human rights and personal data; keeping an eye out for potential risks and harms associated with AI; fortifying privacy policies; and fostering global collaboration are just a few of the major goals that the resolution aims to achieve.

Over the previous few months, the United States and more than 120 other UN members—including Cuba, China, and Russia—negotiated the resolution's text. The resolution's unanimous ratification shows how committed everyone is to regulating AI and making sure technology is developed and used responsibly.

Effects on Underdeveloped Nations

In order to guarantee that all nations have a voice in discussions on artificial intelligence, the resolution places a strong emphasis on the necessity of bridging the digital divide between industrialized and poor nations. Additionally, it seeks to give poor nations the tools and resources they need to benefit from AI, including the ability to diagnose illnesses, forecast floods, assist farmers, and educate the next generation of workers.

Crucial Information for Exams

Since the resolution is not legally binding, member states are not affected by it.

In terms of AI legislation, Europe is ahead of the US; this month, EU lawmakers approved a temporary deal to supervise the technology.

Despite the Biden administration's persistent efforts, the divisive US Congress has not moved much toward regulating artificial intelligence.

Using a new executive order that served as a foundational set of guidelines for future developments in AI research and application, the White House aimed to strengthen national security while lowering the risks that AI poses to workers, consumers, and minorities in October.
