Secretary-General of Abu Dhabi Forum for Peace discusses promoting AI ethics concepts with Moroccan minister


RABAT, 1st May, 2024 (WAM) – Shaikh Al Mahfoudh bin Bayyah, Secretary-General of the Abu Dhabi Forum for Peace, has discussed ways to cooperate on promoting AI ethics concepts with Ghita Mezzour, the Moroccan Delegate-Minister to the Head of Government in charge of Digital Transition and Administration Reform.

The meeting, held in Rabat, emphasised the importance of building bridges to deepen research on the actual and expected impacts of AI on human societies, considering the Forum’s role in establishing the first AI and civil society committee.

The meeting also highlighted the need to draw inspiration from universal and human values to ensure that scientific progress in this field becomes a lever for human dignity, peace values, and the meanings of a decent life.

The discussion included also ways to address the challenges that may accompany the rapid development of the technological world, especially those related to ethical and legal aspects, in the context of a positive investment in modern technologies.

The Forum is the first Islamic organisation to join Rome Call for AI Ethics, which was signed in Rome in January 2023.

The joint signature of the Rome Call for AI Ethics, in January 2023, by the Abrahamic Religions (Shaikh Al Mahfoudh Bin Bayyah, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, and Chief Rabbi Eliezer Simha Weisz) symbolised the shared responsibility across global faith communities.
