The European Commission’s independent expert group has published a revised version of its ethics guidelines for the use of AI.
A revised version of ethics guidelines for trustworthy artificial intelligence have been published by the European Commission’s independent expert group. The new guidelines update a draft version published in December 2018.
The guidelines state that trustworthy AI should respect all applicable laws and regulations, as well as a series of requirements; specific assessment lists aim to help verify the application of each of the key requirements:
In summer 2019, the European Commission will launch a pilot phase involving a wide range of stakeholders. Public bodies and private organisations can sign up now to the European AI Alliance and receive a notification when the pilot starts.
Following the pilot phase, in early 2020, the AI expert group will review the assessment lists for the key requirements, building on the feedback received. Building on this review, the European Commission will evaluate the outcome and propose any next steps.
