Ethically Aligned Design

The IEEE Global Initiative provides the opportunity to bring together multiple voices in the Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems communities to identify and find consensus on timely issues. This document’s purpose is to advance a public discussion of how these intelligent and autonomous technologies can be aligned to moral values and ethical principles that prioritize human well being. It includes eight sections, each addressing a specific topic related to AI/AS that has been discussed at length by a specific committee of The IEEE Global Initiative. Issues and candidate recommendations pertaining to these topics are listed in each committee section. The eight sections include; General Priciples, Embedding Values in Autonomous Intelligence Systems, Methodologies to Guide Ethical Research and Design, Safety and Beneficence of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI), Personal Data and Individual Access Control, Reframing Autonomous Weapons Systems, Economics/Humanitarian Issues, and Law.
