27/01/2023 | 10:25:17 Thank you, Madam Chair. Some 15 years ago, when I was a young researcher, I was invited as an expert to a moot court competition in IHL [International Humanitarian Law] which was titled "Game of Drones". I think that it is something unrealistic. It is impossible to have drones flying, killing, deciding something. It is something which would never happen. I should confess at that time I was very naïve. I'm not very naive now. I would like just to say that, unfortunately, because nobody knows... 26/01/2023 | 19:42:56 Thank you, Mister Chair.

The report considers specifically the ethical, cultural and educational challenges of such applications. The report, in my view, is a helpful contribution to considering the important issues and challenges posed by digital health... 24/01/2023 | 17:27:29 Thank you, Madam Chair. We are speaking about a historical upcoming event. We are speaking about the Reykjavik Summit and we understand that something is going wrong in our organisation and in this Assembly. But simultaneously, we are trying to find somebody who is guilty for what is going on. But I do believe that we should somehow use the Mea culpa approach. We should, first of all, look at our faults. When we are speaking about values, when we are speaking about human rights and...
