Syria participates in UNESCO meeting on discussing Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in education

With the participation of Syria, a virtual ministerial round table meeting was held on Thursday, organized by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), with the aim of discussing the normative framework for ethics of generative artificial intelligence (GAI) in education.

Relevant ministers and officials from 17 countries around the world participated alongside Syria in the meeting, including Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ireland, Mali, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Venezuela, Armenia, Bulgaria, People’s Republic of China, Canada, Ivory Coast, Italy, South Africa, Uzbekistan and Spain.

Minister of Education, Darem Tabbaa noted that the use of generative artificial intelligence in education is a necessity that requires the development of services similar to human educational capabilities that make the learner capable of continuous scientific simulation according to bases that allow him to provide data within a homogeneous human-technological environment that achieves the desired development, without hiding the features of a sound social structure.

Tabbaa pointed out that the problem of generative artificial intelligence in education is that the content it produces is not always accurate or appropriate because it takes into account the truth in a limited way.

Tabaa noted that the ministry launched an educational search engine to enable learners through generative artificial intelligence to access secure and reliable appropriate knowledge and skills to develop their capabilities.
