Brussels Issues Draft Guidelines for AI Regulation

In December 2018 the European Commission’s High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG) released its ‘Draft Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI’, a working document for stakeholder engagement that cites AI as “one of the most transformative forces of our time.” The guidelines emphasise that “an ethical approach to AI is key to enable responsible competitiveness” and provide a list of requirements including Accountability, Data Governance, Design for all, Governance of AI Autonomy (Human oversight), NonDiscrimination, Respect for Human Autonomy, Respect for Privacy, Robustness, Safety, Transparency. A final draft is expected in March 2019. The Guidelines are not intended as a substitute to any form of policymaking or regulation, which will be dealt with in the AI HLEG’s second deliverable: the Policy & Investment Recommendations, due in May 2019.
