e-SIDES and Ethical AI

  1. 1. e-SIDES: Towards Value-Centric Big Data Understanding the ethical and societal implications of big data and promoting accountable data governance and responsible research
  2. 2. …But, not only Big Data • Big Data, AI and Intelligent systems are becoming sophisticated tools in the hands of different stakeholders, including political leaders and global decision makers. • Without solutions being demonstrably worthy of trust, unwanted consequences may emerge, preventing the realization of full benefits for the whole society • Some AI applications may raise new ethical and legal questions, for example related to liability or potentially biased decision-making
  3. 3. e-Sides Ethical and Societal Implications of Data Sciences 3 What is e-SIDES doing... 1) Identify ethical and societal issues 2) Identify existing technologies 3) Assess existing technologies 4) Conduct a gap analysis 5) Identify design requirements 6) Assess solutions under development 7) Identify implementation barriers 8) Make recommendations What? ▪ Liaise with researchers, business leaders, policy makers and civil society through community events ▪ Provide an Open platform for discussion, learning and networking ▪ Provide an agreed-upon and collective community position paper and recommendations How? Why? ▪ Reach a common vision for an ethically sound approach to big data and facilitate responsible research and innovation for value-centric big data ▪ Improve the dialogue between stakeholders and the confidence of citizens towards big data technologies and data markets ongoing
  4. 4. 4 ...for value-centric big data? Data-driven innovation that at the same time provides opportunities for economic added value and respects ethical and societal values and human rights is what e-SIDES aims at. “Not everything that is legally compliant and technically feasible is morally sustainable.” Giovanni Buttarelli, European Data Protection Supervisor, at ICDPPC 2018
  5. 5. 5 What do we have... Research materials (examples) • Assessment of ethical implications • Assessment of privacy-preserving technologies • Design requirements for new generation technologies Community connections • Big Data Value Association PPP • euRobotics PPP • Upcoming AI-PPP • Civil society associations • Policy makers (European Commission, EU DPO) • High-level experts • Other projects dealing with ethics (Canvas, Sienna..) Community Position Paper • The project brings together the community to collaboratively produce a paper with recommendations for future research on big data • The CPP will be promoted and distributed at the EC level • Presented at e-SIDES Final Conference (Nov, Brussels)
  6. 6. Trustworthy and Human-Centric AI What’s happening in the EU?
  7. 7. The EC mission In order to increase transparency and minimise the risk of bias, AI systems should be developed and deployed in a manner that allows humans to understand the basis of their actions. Explainable AI is an essential factor in the process of strengthening people’s trust in such systems.” Roberto Viola Director General of DG CONNECT (Directorate General of Communication Networks, Content and Technology) at the European Commission In my first 100 days in office, I will put forward legislation for a coordinated European approach on the human and ethical implications of Artificial Intelligence. This should also look at how we can use big data for innovations that create wealth for our societies and our businesses. I will make sure that we prioritise investments in Artificial Intelligence, both through the Multiannual Financial Framework and through the increased use of public-private partnerships. Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission
  8. 8. The EC Actions EC Communication in 2018 for ethical, secure and cutting-edge, human-centric AI made in Europe High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG), mandated with the drafting : (1) AI Ethics Guidelines and (2) Policy and Investment Recommendations 1) Guidelines, 8 April 2019 2) Recommendations, 26 June 2019 Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for the AI-PPP, June 2019
  9. 9. European AI HLEG Work so far AI Ethical Guidelines Document (overview of guidelines framework) AI Ethical Policy and Investment Recommendations (mapping of priority areas) Piloting phase of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI to enable their improvement and secure their sectoral relevance (open consultations, call for applications, funded projects, etc) Next Phase
