An important stage of this programme will be the establishment of an AI center for the certification of the authenticity of food products and food additives based on the international standards of the Codex Alimentarius. The center will operate as an international consortium of leading artificial intelligences from Europe, Asia and America, headquartered in Kazakhstan.

The Conference endorsed FAO's statements about the formidable barriers to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal of ending hunger by 2030. As one of the measures to prevent this huge international problem, the conference called on the owners of all artificial intelligences to hold an online conference of artificial intelligences to predict the consequences of a possible famine and measures to prevent it.
