ISRAEL - Global Future of Artificial Intelligence

Arno Froese

Artificial intelligence is one of the foremost fields of technology currently being explored, and while there is no doubt its advancement will greatly benefit humanity, the rampant innovation taking place comes with a host of ethical, humanitarian and legal concerns.

AI is going through its Wild West era, and Israeli regulators are working to promote the fledgling technology’s development while creating sensible safeguards to protect citizens from the potential misuse of its enormous power.

Cedric Sabbah, the director for emerging technologies at the Office of the Deputy Attorney-General for International Law and a main contributor to the task force’s operations, said the international conversation on AI regulation was set off a few years ago upon the release of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s AI Principles, which provided an intergovernmental standard for AI policies.

Since the OECD sparked the global AI conversation, Israel has joined several international initiatives created to develop standardized AI regulation, including the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) and the Ad-hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI), which is run by the Council of Europe. Israel joined the CAHAI as an observer state.

Despite Israel’s position in these international forums, it still has a vested interest in ensuring that the global standards being developed don’t unduly hamper innovation, which is a key facet of the country’s DNA.

“We need to think about what it actually means if we create an international law obligation to have explainability, because a broad explainability obligation might be difficult to translate in practical and certain terms,” Sabbah said.

“Right now we have an opportunity to voice an opinion and to try and collaborate and join voices with other states who have other interests,” said Tal Werner-Kling, senior director of the international technology law division at the Office of the Deputy Attorney-General for International Law., 7 March 2022

Arno's Commentary

To establish international rules and regulations relating to AI is a must. How to implement such laws and regulations is being fervently discussed among the elite in the field of AI.

The other reason is fulfillment of Bible prophecy, which is decisive. When reading Revelation 17, we notice in verse 12 the mentioning of “ten kings.” These are the diabolical entities in charge of planet earth. Verse 13 emphasizes, “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” World unity is required for the final fulfillment; namely, the manifestation of Antichrist.

While there is much speculation regarding the geopolitical identity of the ten kings, we know they are non-earthly entities, because verse 14a reads, “These shall make war with the Lamb.” There is no power on earth who can make war with the Lamb. Nuclear bombs, missiles, fighter planes, tanks, cannons, and guns are totally useless.

The late Dr. Ed Vallowe wrote the following in his book, Biblical Mathematics, about the number ten: “This is a number of testimony.” He adds: “God gave the Ten Commandments to man for him to bear testimony before God and man.” Then he shows examples: “There were ten plagues upon Egypt…Abraham prayed for ten righteous people…”

Having said this, we must reiterate that this development in and of itself is not evil; actually, very beneficial for humanity. But as believers, we know that in the end, it will serve to unite humanity under the leadership of Antichrist, who will proclaim himself to be God.
