The workshop is being done in implementation of Jordan’s 2020 policy for AI, and targets public and private, as well as academic institutions and civil society institutions.

During the workshop, participants listened to lectures on the ethics and principles expected to be included in the national AI charter, which aims to boost the level of innovation and creativity, and provide an encouraging environment for investment.

The principles aim at maintaining the sovereignty of law, human rights, democratic values, and variation, while taking into consideration the inclusion of all members of the community into AI systems and making sure those systems work prejudice of color, race, religion, or gender.

All suggestions and ideas from the meeting will be analyzed by the ministry so as to reflect them in the charter’s articles.  

It is also worth noting that Jordan’s 2020 AI policy aims to define where the government is heading with AI-related policies, according to Al-Ghad news.
 The charter also aims at improving innovation, increasing investments, supporting startups, and encouraging Jordanian companies to provide solutions and AI services.
