What happened to artificial intelligence in Costa Rica …

(MENAFN-Costa Rica News) –a-

With the advancement of artificial intelligence technology in countries around the world, the advances that can come from it have been noticed in every aspect, especially for more detailed investigations of large organizations. In fact, nations like China, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, Germany, Norway, Sweden, France and India are leaders in artificial intelligence.

It’s like a global competition for those who are moving faster or have bigger trends. The truth is that industries have praised this technology because artificial intelligence has the power to recognize faces instantly, run autonomous cars, achieve better results and strengthen business.

The State Council of the People’s Republic of China has declared its country the global technology leader with an investment of up to 150 billion by 2030. Along those same lines, the US has also steered up to a billion towards artificial intelligence, although specialists comment that they don’t see a very clear future for the technology due to what they see as contradictory activity within the country.

The UK has 121 companies powered by artificial intelligence that have achieved optimal profits for the European continent. Meanwhile, the Canadian government is motivated to invest in artificial intelligence projects and recently promised to invest $125 million in technology research.

Now, is it true that Costa Rica will be the first country in Central America to have artificial intelligence strategies?

Right, Costa Rica will have the strategies. The action will focus on laying the foundations of cooperation between the country and UNESCO in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

We are talking about a declaration of commitment recently signed by authorities of the Ministry of Science, Innovation, Technology and Telecommunications (MICITT) of Costa Rica for the Central American country to develop an artificial intelligence strategy according to the “Recommendation on Ethics in Artificial Intelligence” by UNESCO, which is also supported by the Andean Development Cooperation (CAF). It is a mutual agreement accompanied by workshops and the identification of AI projects.

Combining ethics with artificial intelligence

“It is important to link ethics with artificial intelligence. We are currently working with several countries on this important recommendation and we are delighted that a country so committed to innovation and responsible development is joining this initiative,” said Alexander Leicht, Director of the UNESCO Multicountry Office in San José.

Other Costa Rican authorities, such as Alexei Carrillo, Minister of the Interior for Health, stressed that “the tools that can be put into practice in the country on artificial intelligence are very important, since they have already been used in the same way in relation to medicine about 3,000 years and that needs to change.” It should be noted that Costa Rica has great technological and professional capacities that can be used in various fields according to the guidelines of UNESCO.
