Artificial Intelligence for a Fair, Just, and Equitable World

The rise of AI has fueled the debate on the potential contribution of new technologies to the creation of a prosperous and equitable world, as against the countless ethical, moral, legal, humanitarian, and political–social risks, as well as physical and mental health risks.

The ethical debate on this topic is taking place mostly in high-income countries so that much of it is of little relevance to the more than 700 million people living in extreme poverty. Reciprocally, ethical questions that greatly affect marginalized populations are not treated with the importance they deserve in this debate.
