Ai.ethics Virtual Session

In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, the Portuguese Business Ethics Association (APEE) and the United Nations Association Portugal join forces to present the innovative Ai.ethics Program.

Ai.ethics, conceived and promoted by APEE in collaboration with UNA Portugal, arises from the urgent need to guide private sector companies and public or private non-business entities toward adopting ethical and responsible practices in the use of artificial intelligence. This initiative is based on the UNESCO Recommendation on Ethics in Artificial Intelligence, the Directives and guidelines of the European Union, and Portuguese Legislation.

Registrations for participation in the session can be made through the link.
