The Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention would like to share the unofficial translation of the article By Dialogue Against Hate, written and posted by Gyorgy Tatar, Chair of the Budapest Centre, in his private Facebook page on 23 November, 2021.
The Budapest Centre is proud to present the new piece of its Artificial Intelligence series On the Use of Artificial Intelligence in the framework of the Syrian War.
This paper innovatively provides a compilation of AI weapons and tools applied by a multitude of actors during the conflict and concludes by stating how their employment jeopardizes human rights, thereby stressing the necessity of a universal regulation on the development and misuse of AI - from the perspective of mass atrocities.
We wish to point out that Artificial Intelligence plays an increasing role in conflict scenarios: At the same time that it has become a tool for human rights violations, it also holds the potential to play a positive role in genocide prevention, victims’ support, and reconstruction.
The Budapest Centre is proud to share its latest policy paper Misuse of Artificial Intelligence: Occupied Palestinian Territories. Case study.
As a new piece of the Artificial Intelligence series of the Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention, this paper offers an insight on how the Israeli authorities apply tools of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Occupied Palestinian Territories by pointing to the significance and risks of using AI during conflict—without wishing to provide an exhaustive and detailed list of challenges and their respective international activities. Our aim is to further engender the International Community’s political will to address these threats from the perspective of conflict escalation and mass atrocity crimes prevention.
The authors and the Budapest Centre hope that this research will prove useful in particular for young readers who wish to learn more about the ongoing conflict in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and the role AI plays in mass atrocity crimes.
