Minorities are an important component of the integrated international fabric of the international community as a whole, if almost no State in the world is without minorities. They constitute the harmonious balance in the territory of a single State that reflects its culture, knowledge and historical relevance. Most of the tools of industrial intelligence fall into the hands of for-profit companies or power-hungry Governments. Digital systems often lack the values and ethics to leave decision-making to the people themselves, which negatively affects minorities.

This has led many organizations, including the United Nations, to advocate positive use of AI techniques aimed at strengthening the protection of human rights in general and minority rights in particular. If these calls resonate, artificial intelligence technologies will help save lives, alleviate suffering and persecute minorities, as it is necessary to ensure that the digital revolution serves the interests of the people, not the other way around.

We must ensure that every operation run by an artificial intelligence machine or system corresponds to our basic principles such as transparency, fairness, accountability, supervision and reparation. We can even use artificial intelligence to anticipate possible human rights violations in general and violations of minority rights in particular, paving the way for pre-emptive prevention and early response. Skill requires the competent authorities to make use of the potential of artificial intelligence technologies and not to reject them at all so that they do not become safe havens for human rights violations as long as they are recognized as dangerous; Achieving a constructive logical balance between artificial intelligence and the protection of human rights requires further efforts by Governments and companies to take concrete measures to ensure respect for human rights, given the increasingly powerful role of artificial intelligence technology.
