IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, and the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) today announced the launch of the first edition of Ethically Aligned Design (EAD1e), “A Vision for Prioritizing Human Well-being with Autonomous and Intelligent Systems.” EAD1e is available from The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous […]
The IEC released a new white paper on artificial intelligence developed by its Market Strategy Board. This white paper sets the scene for understanding where artificial intelligence stands today and the outlook for the next 5 to 10 years. Taking an industrial perspective, it discusses in more detail: smart homes, intelligent manufacturing, smart transportation/self-driving vehicles, […]
The IEC set up a new Standardization Evaluation Group (SEG 10) tasked with assessing the impact of ethical issues and societal concerns on artificial intelligence applications. The group is open to all interested experts having knowledge and expertise in these fields. More information (including registration) is available from www.iec.ch/seg10.
“When developing new standards in robotics, social scientists and ethicists need to be involved even more strongly in standardization work on an international and European level, in order to evaluate advantages and disadvantages of atomization in an interdisciplinary way”, Austria’s Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health and Consumer Protection Beate Hartinger-Klein stated at an informal […]
