Any technological advancement brings excitement to end users due to its novelty and potential benefits for mankind. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the latest to join this bandwagon. A frank discussion on ethics while using technology is a dire need of the hour.
Dubai’s Ethical AI Toolkit has been created to provide practical help across a city ecosystem. It supports industry, academia and individuals in understanding how AI systems can be used responsibly. It consists of principles and guidelines, and a self-assessment tool for developers to assess their platforms.
Smart Dubai aims to provide a unified guidance that is continuously improved in collaboration with the city’s various communities. Ultimately, the goal is to reach widespread agreement and adoption of commonly-agreed policies to inform the ethical use of AI.
DUBAI AI PRINCIPLES
The four non-binding AI principles are Dubai’s attempt to answer crucial questions such as these.
What overarching goals should an AI system have? How should it behave, and what values should it follow?
These high-level statements lay out the aspirations and roadmap for the behavior of AI systems as they get smarter and become an integral part of people’s lives. The four main principles contain sub-principles that help in clearly define the goals for AI design and behavior.
Smart Dubai considers these principles a collaborative work in progress and entertain feedback for refining them.
1. Making AI systems Fair
