IEEE offers to standardize the ethical aspects of AI
Organizations IEEE and IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has approved three new draft standards under the influence of works in the framework of the initiative for the study of ethical aspects of artificial intelligence (AI) and self-driving cars (The IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems). The new standards will be included in the family of IEEE P7000 and the implementation will be the key perceptions of the IEEE on the priority of ethical considerations in the development of Autonomous and intelligent technologies.
IEEE P7004 needs to fix the rules for supervision and certification for organizations that handle data on children and students. It is expected that it will provide transparency and accountability, being associated with the safety and well-being of children, their parents, schools, and communities in which children spend time, including online. The standard will define a specific methodology for the certification of the approaches to the access, collection, storage, use, sharing and destruction of data on children and students.
IEEE P7005 describes the decision of similar tasks, but in relation to the employee.
The most interesting IEEE P7006 for personalized AI agents, acting as intermediaries when making decisions in machine-to-machine interaction. The fact that the development of AI creates a risk that solutions in machine-to-machine interaction may be taken without the participation of the people and is opaque to them. To avoid this problem, in IEEE P7006 will be described the technical elements required to create a personalized AI-agent and granting access thereto, including entering information, training, ethical standards, rules and values defined by men.
