Artificial Intelligence and the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in South-East Asia

The global mainstreaming of artificial intelligence technologies (AI) has had an important impact on the security of women. This research conducted by UN Women and the UN University Institute in Macau (UNU Macau) examines the opportunities and risks of AI from a women, peace and security (WPS) lens in South-East Asia, with a focus on four types of gender biases in AI which will need to be addressed before the region can fully benefit from new technological developments: discrimination, stereotyping, exclusion and insecurity. Its objective is to inform governments, policymakers, international organizations, civil society organisations and the private sector interested in AI in the region on the risks and opportunities which these technologies bear, addressing an important gap in understanding this issue. Given existing lacunes in AI and the WPS agenda, this research also contributes to the global conversation on ethics and norms.
