Creating a Responsible Global Framework for Artificial Intelligence and Cyberspace

Islamabad: Secretary of State Cyrus Kazi has called for the establishment of a binding global framework that guarantees responsible use of artificial intelligence (AI) and cyberspace. He also warned against unfair restrictions on access to new technologies for developing countries.

Speaking at a seminar in Islamabad, Kazi emphasized the need for international cooperation in developing a legal framework to regulate the responsible use of cyberspace and AI technologies. The event was jointly organized by the Center for International Strategic Studies (CISS) and the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) in Geneva.

The seminar aimed to explore the connection between AI and cyberspace in the context of global security, the impact of new technologies on security, and ethical considerations. Kazi highlighted Pakistan’s belief in a “legally based international order” that promotes transparency, accountability, and the protection of critical civilian infrastructure.

Pakistan recognizes the dual nature of AI technologies. Kazi stressed the importance of responsible governance, active participation in global discussions, inclusive policy-making, and equal access to AI technologies for all nations, especially those in development.

The secretary of state reiterated Pakistan’s commitment to addressing the challenges posed by unregulated military use of AI, which could threaten global and regional security. Pakistan is engaging with the international community to tackle cyber threats and mitigate risks associated with military applications of AI.

Kazi strongly supported fair, unconditional, and equal access to new and emerging technologies for all countries, while expressing opposition to unnecessary restrictions on technological access. He emphasized the need for an inclusive approach involving governments, the private sector, the academic community, and civil society to jointly develop strategies for a secure, stable, and open cyberspace.

Unnecessary restrictions, particularly in the name of security, can impede the development of science and technology in countries, risking the creation of a new layer of discrimination between developed and developing nations, Kazi added.

Donjon Cho, a senior researcher at UNIDIR, highlighted that data is the main driver of recent AI advancements, but it can also raise numerous ethical concerns. Issues such as incomplete, low-quality, inaccurate, or fake data can lead to ethical and humanitarian problems.

Ambassador Ali Sarvar Naqvi, the Executive Director of CISS, emphasized that technological progress profoundly impacts all aspects of life and shapes our understanding of security. He called for proactive and informed responses to overcome the challenges posed by these technological changes.

In conclusion, creating a responsible global framework for AI and cyberspace is crucial to ensure the ethical and secure use of these technologies. International cooperation, inclusive policy-making, and equal access to technology are essential for a fair and inclusive digital future.
