In 2021, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, the first global agreement in this field. It contains concrete calls to action for policymakers to ensure that AI serves society and sustainable development. The UNESCO Commissions of Germany, the Netherlands and Slovenia have jointly published an English-language brochure on the Recommendation. The brochure summarises the main contents of the Recommendation in a comprehensive form and presents the necessary measures in the selected areas of health, culture, environment, gender equality, education and research.
A German version was published in September 2023.
