1. Be socially beneficial.
The expanded reach of new technologies increasingly touches society as a whole. Advances in AI will have transformative impacts in a wide range of fields, including healthcare, security, energy, transportation, manufacturing, and entertainment. As we consider potential development and uses of AI technologies, we will take into account a broad range of social and economic factors, and will proceed where we believe that the overall likely benefits substantially exceed the foreseeable risks and downsides.
AI also enhances our ability to understand the meaning of content at scale. We will strive to make high quality and accurate information readily available using AI, while continuing to respect cultural, social, and legal norms in the countries where we operate. And we will continue to thoughtfully evaluate when to make our technologies available on a non commercial basis.
We will give AI systems human values and make them beneficial to society
1. Government will support theresearch of the beneficial use of AI
2. AI should be developed to align with human values and contribute to human flourishing
3. Stakeholders throughout society should be involved in the development of AI and its governance
We will share the benefits of AI throughout society
1. Development of AI systems will be matched by a response to its impact on employment
2. AI will be used to help humans retain purpose and flourish mentally, emotionally and economically alongside AI
3. Access to training, opportunity and tools will be made available to all
4. Education should evolve and reflect the latest developments in AI, enabling people to adapt to societal change

3. Human centric AI
AI should be at the service of society and generate tangible benefits for people. AI systems should always stay under human control and be driven by value based considerations. Telefónica is conscious of the fact that the implementation of AI in our products and services should in no way lead to a negative impact on human rights or the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We are concerned about the potential use of AI for the creation or spreading of fake news, technology addiction, and the potential reinforcement of societal bias in algorithms in general. We commit to working towards avoiding these tendencies to the extent it is within our realm of control.
