Draft Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI

This working document constitutes a draft of the AI Ethics Guidelines produced by the European Commission’s High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG), of which a final version is due in March 2019.

The AI HLEG also published a Definition on Artificial Intelligence.

The aim of the draft Guidelines’ publication is to share the work realised so far with stakeholders involved in the field of AI and collect their input on the document itself. For this purpose, we are launching a Stakeholder Consultation that will remain open from 18 December 2018 until 18 January 2019.

The Stakeholders' Consultation Form will allow you to go through the individual sections, provide your input to each of them and comment on the draft document as a whole.

After the consultation process is completed, the AI HLEG will present a final version of the Guidelines to the Commission in March 2019. The ambition is then to bring Europe's ethical approach to the global stage.
