Pilot the Assessment List of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI
The Assessment List for Trustworthy AI is the operational tool of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI, aiming to ensure that users benefit from Artificial Intelligence (AI) without being exposed to unnecessary risks. This list, first presented with the Ethics Guidelines in June 2019, was revised following a piloting process that involved more than 350 stakeholders.
Feedback on the assessment list was given in three ways:
- An online survey filled in by participants registered to the process;
- The sharing best practices on how to achieve trustworthy AI through the European AI Alliance;
- A series of in-depth interviews (selected organisations marked theri interest through a relevant call).
The assessment list of the ethics guidelines operationalises the key requirements for ethical AI and offers guidance to implement them in practice.
This feedback helped better understand how the assessment list can be implemented within an organisation. It also indicated where specific tailoring of the assessment list was still needed, given AI’s context-specificity.
The piloting phase took place from 26 June until 1 December 2019.
Based on the feedback received, the High-Level Expert Group on AI proposed a revised version of the assessment list, accompanied by a prototype web-tool, to support AI developers and deployers in developing Trustworthy AI.
