According to the website of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, in that meeting, Dr. Sorena Sattari, the head of the Science-Technology Commission of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, Dr. Abbas Maleki, a faculty member of Energy Engineering of Sharif University of Technology, Dr. Saeed Chehrazad, a postdoctoral fellow at Allameh Tabataba’i University, and Mohammad Eslami, co-founder and Managing Director of aiAble, delivered a speech.
Dr. Sattari, emphasizing that the use of artificial intelligence in foreign relations is very necessary and failure to use it, as well as its use, will have risks, pointed to the importance of the amount of data and the process of using it for artificial intelligence and said: Four years ago in a visit to China, I notice the enormous amount of data that the country has collected. In addition, artificial intelligence will come out of the assistant mode in the future.
The head of the Science-Technology Commission of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, stating that artificial intelligence notices people’s sentiments and responds accordingly, pointed out the possibility of recognizing hundreds of dialects in a language by artificial intelligence as one of the applications of this technology, and continued: Using this technology by taking advantage of cognitive science can make the situation more dangerous. For example, if there is a connection between the brain and the machine, a person can take a measure somewhere else without taking action.
Dr. Sattari emphasized that domestic companies can promote the use of artificial intelligence in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However, the fact is that this is one of the issues that cannot be entrusted to foreign companies because, anyway, decision-making should be done through these data. Artificial intelligence now has significant applications in domestic private companies and is used in various fields.
In that meeting, Dr. Saeed Chehrazad and Mohammad Eslami explained the requirements of using artificial intelligence in foreign policy. Also speaking, Dr. Abbas Maleki, a faculty member of the Energy Engineering at the Sharif University of Technology, pointed out the importance of using artificial intelligence in energy diplomacy while referring to the way artificial intelligence is used in some countries.
Also, Dr. Seyed Abbas Araghchi, the Secretary of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, emphasized the importance of using artificial intelligence for diplomats as an assistant, stating: Although ultimately it is a human who decides, an assistant who can categorize a vast amount of information in a fraction of a second, will be very important.
