Ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI

High-Level Expert Group on AI


On 8 April 2019, the High-Level Expert Group on AI presented Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence. This followed the publication of the guidelines’ first draft in December 2018 on which more than 500 comments were received through an open consultation.

According to the Guidelines, trustworthy AI should be:
lawful – respecting all applicable laws and regulations
ethical – respecting ethical principles and values
robust – both from a technical perspective while taking into account its social environment

The AI HLEG has also prepared a document which elaborates on a Definition of Artificial Intelligence used for the purpose of the Guidelines.
