International Colloquium – Artificial Intelligence ethics: from emerging standards to perspectives of implementation

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH), in collaboration with its academic partners, organizes an international colloquium on “Artificial Intelligence (AI) ethics: from emerging standards to perspectives of implementation" on 22 and 23 July 2022 at the CNDH headquarters in Rabat, Morocco.

This colloquium is in line with the Rabat Declaration on “Artificial Intelligence and Digital Citizenship - For an Artificial Intelligence respecting Human Rights” which was adopted by national and international experts in December 2021.

It will gather international speakers from Africa, South America, North America and Europe to further discuss available standards and tools available to better assess the development of AI that respects and protects fundamental rights and freedoms.

It will also be an opportunity to deepen the debate, exchange new expertise and share best practices on the key challenges for implementing ethical AI, such as the upgrading the legal and organizational frameworks, the regulation of education, research, business and development sectors, the composition and prerogatives of control and monitoring bodies.

At this event, stakeholders will focus on the following themes: "AI ethics, global, regional and national initiatives", “AI at the service of Human Rights”, “Ethics of AI, state of initiatives in Morocco”, and “AI Ethical Codes, Discussion and Implementation Prospects”.

Mrs. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson will lead the opening session of this colloquium at 10 am.

Mr. Abdellatif Miraoui, Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation, a representative of the Ministry Delegate in charge of Digital Transition and Administrative Reform, Mr. Ahmed Reda Chami, President of the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (CESE), Mr. Omar Seghrouchni, President of the National Committee for Personal Data control and Protection (CNDP), and Mr. Karim Hendili, Acting Director of the UNESCO Office for the Maghreb Region,  will take part in this event.
