The European Commission has launched the pilot phase of its ethics guidelines for trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI). At the first AI Alliance Assembly, held in Brussels, the High-Level Expert Group on AI announced two developments, including an assessment list for trustworthy AI, developed by a group of 52 independent experts.
Over 300 organisations have already expressed interest in doing so since the group released its ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI in April this year. An online survey has been created to gather feedback on the assessment list and will be open until 1 December 2019. Best practice examples for assessing the trustworthiness of AI can also be shared through the European AI Alliance. The expert group will also carry out interviews with representatives from the public and private sectors to better understand the implications of implementing the assessment list in different sectors.
The group also presented a list of 33 recommendations to the Commission that it believes will help AI have major impact on citizens, businesses, administrations and academia. The focus is on ensuring sustainability, growth, competitiveness and inclusion while empowering, benefiting and protecting individuals. The recommendations include adopting a risk-based governance approach to AI and ensuring an appropriate regulatory framework by mapping relevant laws, assessing to which extent these are still fit for purpose in an AI-driven world, and adopting new measures where needed to protect individuals from harm, “thus contributing to an appropriate governance and regulatory framework for AI”.
