5. Operators of AI systems shall have appropriate competencies.

When our health, our rights, our lives or our liberty depend on hybrid intelligence, such systems should be designed, executed and measured by professionals with the requisite expertise.

2. We care.

We act in tune with our company values. Our systems and solutions must subordinate to humandefined rules and laws. Therefore, in addition to our technical requirements, our systems and solutions have to obey the rules and laws that we as Deutsche Telekom, our employees – and human beings as such – follow. AI systems have to meet the same high technical requirements as any other IT system of ours, such as security, robustness, etc. But since AI will be (and already is) a great part of our everyday lives, even guiding us in several areas, AI systems and their usage also have to comply with our company values (Deutsche Telekom’s Guiding Principles and Code of Conduct), ethical values, and societal conventions. We have to make sure of that.

6. We set the framework.

Our AI solutions are developed and enhanced on grounds of deep analysis and evaluation. They are transparent, auditable, fair, and fully documented. We consciously initiate the AI’s development for the best possible outcome. The essential paradigm for our AI systems’ impact analysis is “privacy und security by design”. This is accompanied e.g. by risks and chances scenarios or reliable disaster scenarios. We take great care in the initial algorithm of our own AI solutions to prevent so called “Black Boxes” and to make sure that our systems shall not unintentionally harm the users

1. Purpose

The purpose of AI and cognitive systems developed and applied by the IBM company is to augment human intelligence. Our technology, products, services and policies will be designed to enhance and extend human capability, expertise and potential. Our position is based not only on principle but also on science. Cognitive systems will not realistically attain consciousness or independent agency. Rather, they will increasingly be embedded in the processes, systems, products and services by which business and society function – all of which will and should remain within human control.

2. Transparency

For cognitive systems to fulfill their world changing potential, it is vital that people have confidence in their recommendations, judgments and uses. Therefore, the IBM company will make clear: When and for what purposes AI is being applied in the cognitive solutions we develop and deploy. The major sources of data and expertise that inform the insights of cognitive solutions, as well as the methods used to train those systems and solutions. The principle that clients own their own business models and intellectual property and that they can use AI and cognitive systems to enhance the advantages they have built, often through years of experience. We will work with our clients to protect their data and insights, and will encourage our clients, partners and industry colleagues to adopt similar practices.

4. We strive for transparency and integrity in all that we do

Our systems are held to specific standards in accordance with their level of technical ability and intended usage. Their input, capabilities, intended purpose, and limitations will be communicated clearly to our customers, and we provide means for oversight and control by customers and users. They are, and will always remain, in control of the deployment of our products. We actively support industry collaboration and will conduct research to further system transparency. We operate with integrity through our code of business conduct, our internal AI Ethics Steering Committee, and our external AI Ethics Advisory Panel.
