· We will make AI systems fair

1. Data ingested should, where possible, be representative of the affected population 2. Algorithms should avoid non operational bias 3. Steps should be taken to mitigate and disclose the biases inherent in datasets 4. Significant decisions should be provably fair

5 DEMOCRATIC PARTICIPATION PRINCIPLE

AIS must meet intelligibility, justifiability, and accessibility criteria, and must be subjected to democratic scrutiny, debate, and control. 1) AIS processes that make decisions affecting a person’s life, quality of life, or reputation must be intelligible to their creators. 2) The decisions made by AIS affecting a person’s life, quality of life, or reputation should always be justifiable in a language that is understood by the people who use them or who are subjected to the consequences of their use. Justification consists in making transparent the most important factors and parameters shaping the decision, and should take the same form as the justification we would demand of a human making the same kind of decision. 3) The code for algorithms, whether public or private, must always be accessible to the relevant public authorities and stakeholders for verification and control purposes. 4) The discovery of AIS operating errors, unexpected or undesirable effects, security breaches, and data leaks must imperatively be reported to the relevant public authorities, stakeholders, and those affected by the situation. 5) In accordance with the transparency requirement for public decisions, the code for decision making algorithms used by public authorities must be accessible to all, with the exception of algorithms that present a high risk of serious danger if misused. 6) For public AIS that have a significant impact on the life of citizens, citizens should have the opportunity and skills to deliberate on the social parameters of these AIS, their objectives, and the limits of their use. 7) We must at all times be able to verify that AIS are doing what they were programmed for and what they are used for. 8) Any person using a service should know if a decision concerning them or affecting them was made by an AIS. 9) Any user of a service employing chatbots should be able to easily identify whether they are interacting with an AIS or a real person. 10) Artificial intelligence research should remain open and accessible to all.

· We will make AI systems accountable

1. Accountability for the outcomes of an AI system lies not with the system itself but is apportioned between those who design, develop and deploy it 2. Developers should make efforts to mitigate the risks inherent in the systems they design 3. AI systems should have built in appeals procedures whereby users can challenge significant decisions 4. AI systems should be developed by diverse teams which include experts in the area in which the system will be deployed

· We will make AI systems as explainable as technically possible

1. Decisions and methodologies of AI systems which have a significant effect on individuals should be explainable to them, to the extent permitted by available technology 2. It should be possible to ascertain the key factors leading to any specific decision that could have a significant effect on an individual 3. In the above situation we will provide channels through which people can request such explanations

· We will make AI systems transparent

1. Developers should build systems whose failures can be traced and diagnosed 2. People should be told when significant decisions about them are being made by AI 3. Within the limits of privacy and the preservation of intellectual property, those who deploy AI systems should be transparent about the data and algorithms they use

· AI systems will be safe, secure and controllable by humans

1. Safety and security of the people, be they operators, end users or other parties, will be of paramount concern in the design of any AI system 2. AI systems should be verifiably secure and controllable throughout their operational lifetime, to the extent permitted by technology 3. The continued security and privacy of users should be considered when decommissioning AI systems 4. AI systems that may directly impact people’s lives in a significant way should receive commensurate care in their designs, and; 5. Such systems should be able to be overridden or their decisions reversed by designated people
