UNICEF seeking comments on draft guidance on AI and children’s rights

As a part of the Artificial Intelligence for Children Policy project, UNICEF is seeking public comments up to 16 October on its draft guidance to promote children’s rights in government and private sector AI policies and practices and to raise awareness of how AI systems can uphold or undermine the rights of children. Drawing upon the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the guidance presents three foundations for AI policy that upholds the rights of children: AI policies and systems should aim to protect children, ensure equity for children’s needs and rights, and empower children to contribute to the development and use of AI.
