WHY ENGAGE WITH ​RESPONSIBLE AI Principles & standards

​EU AI Ethics Guidelines
​Ethics ​& Responsible AI

​T​he Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence developed by the EU High-Level Expert Group on AI ​highlight that trustworthy AI should be lawful, ethical and robust. They put forward ​a set of ​seven key requirements that AI systems should meet in order to be deemed trustworthy, including among others ​diversity, non-discrimination, societal and environmental well-being, transparency and accountability. T​he Guidelines have been also reinforced by AI Policy and Investment Recommendations.

​OECD principles on Artificial Intelligence
​Principles ​& Responsible AI

​​The OECD’s ​member​ countries along with partner countries adopted the first ever set of intergovernmental policy guidelines on ​AI​, agreeing to uphold international standards ​that aim to ensure AI systems are ​designed in a way that respects the rule of law, human rights, democratic values and diversity. They emphasize that AI should benefit people and the planet by driving inclusive growth, sustainable development and well-being.

​CoE: Human Rights impacts of Algorithms
​Human Rights ​& Responsible AI

​​Draft recommendation on the human rights impacts of algorithmic AI systems ​was released by the Council of Europe for public consultation in August 2019 and adopted in ​April 2020. ​The CoE's document explicitly refers to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights as a guidance for due diligence process and ​Human ​Rights Impact Assessments. ​Furthermore, CoE established Ad Hoc Committee ​on ​AI to ​develop ​​the first international ​legal instrument ​​on the development, design and application of AI, based on ​human rights standards, democracy ​and the principles of the rule of law.​

​​IEEE Global Initiative: ​ethically Aligned Design
​​IEEE standards ​& Responsible AI

​​Ethically Aligned Design (EAD) Document is created ​​to ​educate a broader public ​and to inspire ​academics, engineers, policy makers and manufacturers of autonomous and intelligent systems​ to take action ​on prioritiz​ing ethical considerations​​.​ The general principles for AI design, manufacturing and use include: human rights, wellbeing, data agency, effectiveness, transparency, accountability, awareness of misuse, competence. ​The unique IEEE P7000 Standards series address specific issues at the intersection of technology and ethics​ and aimed to empower innovation across borders and enable societal benefit. ​​The Ethics Certification Program ​was launched by IEEE to develop metrics and ​methodology towards ​implementation of ​certification and marking processes ​addressing ​initially transparency, accountability and algorithmic bias.      ​ 

Sustainable Development Goals
SDGs ​& Responsible AI

​Today, business success is measured by its positive impact on society and concrete contribution to solving ​most pressing global challenges. By ​pro-actively engaging with the ​Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and making business decisions in alignment with the SDGs, you ​gain an edge you need to succeed. As for inspiration and ideas for collaboration across borders, the annual ​AI for Good Global Summit is the leading UN platform for global and inclusive dialogue on how artificial intelligence could help accelerate progress towards the ​​Global Goals.

​Business ​and Human Rights
​UN​GPs & Responsible AI

​In ​an era of rapid ​technological disruption and rising ​inequality, business has a ​unique opportunity ​to implement​ human-centered innovation by taking into account ​social, ethical​ and human rights implications of AI. The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), authoritative global sustainability framework, offers a roadmap​ to navigate responsibility-related challenges and inspires creative solutions.

​Collaborative Platforms and Social Learning
​EU & global Networking 

​In times when ​Europe finds its space among AI superpowers and ​most EU countries have ​​articulated their ambitions related to artificial intelligence, it is of paramount importance to find your unique voice, ​​track and join ​essential conversations, strategically engage in collective efforts and leave meaningful digital footprint.​ ​We ​live in ​an interconnected ​and interdependent world!
