Moratorium on rights-threatening AI needed until due diligence conducted, said UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet yesterday. The UN high commissioner for human rights’ report highlighted the threat to privacy, health, and education, as well as to freedom of movement, peaceful assembly, and expression that some AI pose. The report will inform today’s discussions on a draft resolution concerning the right to privacy in the digital age.
