Republic of Korea: In reference to AI advancements, South Korea strongly favors the possibility of comparing the legal personhood of Artificial Intelligence(AI) to that of a human. AI has proven to be a valuable advantage to the Republic of Korea in fields such as military use, energy management, education, and the assistance of future development.

The Republic of Korea has recognized that AI is a direct descendant of human intelligence, therefore it can cause confusion between the legal, ethical, and societal rift in the results of granting AI similar rights to humans. However, it is determined that AI creates public value in the economy, allowing creation to ultimately continue. This makes it necessary to establish legal systems in…

The United States of America firmly believes that a thorough examination of the potential legal, ethical, and societal consequences reveals numerous challenges and risks in conferring legal personhood to advanced AI systems.


Granting AI personhood would have profound societal implications, blurring the line between humans and AI and potentially reducing human agency, displacing workers, and creating economic and social disparities. It could also incentivize the development of AI systems that exploit legal benefits without genuine ethical accountability, leading to biased decision-making, loss of human autonomy, and concentration of power in AI entities.


Instead of granting personhood, ethical considerations should focus on the intentions, biases, and values embedded in AI systems. This approach promotes responsible AI design and ensures that human…

DELEGATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF SLOVAKIA


In our ever-evolving world, technological advancements, notably in Artificial Intelligence (AI), have raised profound ethical questions. The fundamental query at hand pertains to the ethicality of AI utilization. While AI exhibits both positive and negative attributes, it is imperative to discern whether its application aligns with moral principles.


AI undeniably has the potential to disrupt the labor market, potentially resulting in substantial unemployment. Conversely, AI, when employed judiciously, has the capacity to propel technological and scientific progress to unprecedented levels. Crucially, it must be comprehended that AI lacks innate intelligence; it functions under human guidance and control. Hence, the ethical ramifications of AI deployment emanate from human choices and decisions.


The proposition of conferring…

Ukraine

Ukraine recognizes the advantages and benefits of the use of artificial intelligence. The departments of defense against cyber warfare have proven extremely effective and highly capable during the war with Ukraine, which has been deemed the largest military conflict of the cyber age and the first political altercation to integrate such substantial levels of cyber activities from all parties involved. Due to the events associated with the Russo-Ukraine war, the nation agreed to grant legal recognition to advanced AI systems. The IT army of Ukraine is already abiding by the recently developed rules of engagement for civilian hackers involved in conflicts, issued by The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).


These rules are based on humanitarian principles and…

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea: In the wake of artificial intelligence’s rise, it should come as no surprise that these new technologies can be perceived as a potential detriment to society’s development. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea wholeheartedly agrees with this stance, due to our government’s high opposition to any tool, commercialized or not, that may cause harm to our millions of citizens. According to our 1948 constitution, every one of our inhabitants is entitled to “equal rights in all spheres of government, political, economic, social and cultural activity”, which serves as the basis of all human rights within our borders. Therefore, because artificial intelligence is a mostly automatic, consciousness tool lacking all forms of self-awareness, it should…
