Foreign minister calls for rules for ethical use of AI
Cerar participated in a panel debate on AI, saying that education was key to raising awareness about the challenges of artificial intelligence.
He also discussed the importance of human rights protection in AI at the conference taking place only weeks after UNESCO approved Slovenia's bid to set up an AI research centre, the first of its kind under the auspices of the organisation.
The conference also discussed human rights protection in the face of climate change, preservation of progress in women's rights and human rights protection in business.
The Foreign Ministry said in a press release that the topics discussed at the conference are among Slovenia's foreign policy priorities.
Cerar was in Berlin at the invitation of his German counterpart Heiko Maas, with whom he also held a bilateral meeting. He also met the new Canadian Foreign Minister Francois-Philipp Champagne.
With Maas Cerar discussed bilateral cooperation and key issues within the EU, as well as topical regional issues. The ministers agreed that cooperation between Slovenia and Germany was developing well and reflected excellent bilateral relations.
Touching in negotiations about the EU's next multi-year budget, Cerar stressed the importance of cohesion for a uniform and strong development of the EU.
Meanwhile, Cerar and Champagne shared the view that Slovenia and Canada had excellent relations, especially on multilateral level.
