· AI systems should not be able to autonomously hurt, destroy or deceive humans

1. AI systems should be built to serve and inform, and not to deceive and manipulate 2. Nations should collaborate to avoid an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons, and such weapons should be tightly controlled 3. Active cooperation should be pursued to avoid corner cutting on safety standards 4. Systems designed to inform significant decisions should do so impartially

Responsible Deployment

Principle: The capacity of an AI agent to act autonomously, and to adapt its behavior over time without human direction, calls for significant safety checks before deployment, and ongoing monitoring. Recommendations: Humans must be in control: Any autonomous system must allow for a human to interrupt an activity or shutdown the system (an “off switch”). There may also be a need to incorporate human checks on new decision making strategies in AI system design, especially where the risk to human life and safety is great. Make safety a priority: Any deployment of an autonomous system should be extensively tested beforehand to ensure the AI agent’s safe interaction with its environment (digital or physical) and that it functions as intended. Autonomous systems should be monitored while in operation, and updated or corrected as needed. Privacy is key: AI systems must be data responsible. They should use only what they need and delete it when it is no longer needed (“data minimization”). They should encrypt data in transit and at rest, and restrict access to authorized persons (“access control”). AI systems should only collect, use, share and store data in accordance with privacy and personal data laws and best practices. Think before you act: Careful thought should be given to the instructions and data provided to AI systems. AI systems should not be trained with data that is biased, inaccurate, incomplete or misleading. If they are connected, they must be secured: AI systems that are connected to the Internet should be secured not only for their protection, but also to protect the Internet from malfunctioning or malware infected AI systems that could become the next generation of botnets. High standards of device, system and network security should be applied. Responsible disclosure: Security researchers acting in good faith should be able to responsibly test the security of AI systems without fear of prosecution or other legal action. At the same time, researchers and others who discover security vulnerabilities or other design flaws should responsibly disclose their findings to those who are in the best position to fix the problem.

1 WELL BEING PRINCIPLE

The development and use of artificial intelligence systems (AIS) must permit the growth of the well being of all sentient beings. 1) AIS must help individuals improve their living conditions, their health, and their working conditions. 2) AIS must allow individuals to pursue their preferences, so long as they do not cause harm to other sentient beings. 3) AIS must allow people to exercise their mental and physical capacities. 4) AIS must not become a source of ill being, unless it allows us to achieve a superior well being than what one could attain otherwise. 5) AIS use should not contribute to increasing stress, anxiety, or a sense of being harassed by one’s digital environment.

· 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

· 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
