AI4People is the first global forum in Europe on the social impact of AI. Launched in November 2017 with a three year roadmap, the goal of AI4People is to create a common public space for laying out the founding principles, policies and practices on which to build a “good AI society”. AI4People does not aim to define new regulations for AI but to draft a set of ethical guidelines aimed at facilitating the design of policies favorable to the development of a “good AI society”.
AI4People is a multi-stakeholder forum, bringing together all actors interested in shaping the impact of new applications of AI, including the European Commission, the European Parliament, civil society organisations, industry and the media. One of its members is IEAI Director Prof. Dr. Christoph Lütge.
The goals of AI4People include:
• identifying the core values that should inform an ethical framework supporting a preferable development of AI,
• designing a European ethical framework for “good AI society”, and
• recommending actionable measures for successful implementation of the framework.
The results of this first phase of AI4People were presented at the Summit on Artificial Intelligence at the European Parliament in Brussels in October 2018.
