Deputy of the Prosperous Armenia faction of the National Assembly of Armenia, member of the Armenian Delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Mikayel Melkumyan posted on his Facebook page that he raised the issue of the devastating consequences of the militarization of artificial intelligence in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.
He particularly stated that when talking about the use of artificial intelligence for the benefit of the public, we must say that this often causes many problems, some of which concern human rights.
Melkumyan talked about the large-scale military aggression that Azerbaijan launched against Artsakh with Turkey a month ago and added that, as a result of the use of Turkish and Israeli unmanned aerial vehicles, including Bayraktars, there are dozens of victims and hundreds of injured among the civilian population. He also said this is a violation of the right of peaceful civilians to life through artificial intelligence.
He also specifically stated that people are dying as a result of the use of artificial intelligence and asked if the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is able to clearly interfere or impose sanctions, or if the PACE is waiting for the right of people to life is violated once and for all and then make one or two statements.
Melkumyan added that it is necessary to distinguish between the blood that is shed during a surgery and the blood shed by an executioner.
In closing, he emphasized that the statement by head of the Azerbaijani delegation Samad Seyidov on the bombardment of Ganja with ballistic missiles is simply a dirty lie and doesn’t correspond to reality.
