UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned against the dangers of «machines that have the powers and the discretion to take human lives», speaking at the opening ceremony of the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon on Monday. The UN chief claimed that such machines are «politically unacceptable» and «morally impudent». He also added that the web cannot be «blamed» for creating populism... Еще and polarisation, though it amplifies those issues. Guterres called for the mobilisation of the government and for civil society to create «filters» against hate speech and the manipulation of elections. The Web Summit will last until the November 8 with an estimated 70,000 people taking part in the event.
