EU Ethics Guidelines published

08 April 2019

Today, the EU High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) on AI released their ethics guidelines for trustworthy artificial intelligence.

Our co-founder, Jaan Tallinn, was one of the 52 HLEG experts, drawn from tech companies, NGOs and academia. Haydn Belfield and Shahar Avin contributed advice to the HLEG.

The guidelines put forward a set of 7 key requirements that AI systems should meet in order to be deemed trustworthy. A specific assessment list aims to help verify the application of each of the key requirements:

  • Human agency and oversight
  • Technical Robustness and safety
  • Privacy and data governance
  • Transparency
  • Diversity, non-discrimination and fairness
  • Societal and environmental well-being
  • Accountability

The Guidelines were welcomed by the European Commission, the Financial Times, and many in the field of AI ethics.
