Ethical AI for the Governance of the Society: Challenges and Opportunities

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are expected to have numerous and diverse social implications that cut deep into our society. Due to AI’s specific nature as emergent and constantly evolving generic technology, we need new approaches, methodologies, and processes to govern and steer the utilization of AI technologies both in the public and private sectors. This is both a multilevel and multi-dimensional governance challenge. First, there has to be a shared and coordinated understanding across various social and administrational sectors on how AI is implemented and regulated. Second, good coordination between different levels of governance is crucial. Third, there is a challenge to find a balance between soft and hard governance mechanisms in varying implementation and organizational contexts. This paper presents an overview of a new Strategic Research Council funded project project entitled “Ethical AI for the Governance of the Society” (ETAIROS). The project focuses on studying and co-developing together with stakeholders practical governance approaches, as well as design and technology solutions that help public, private and civil society actors enhance the ethical sustainability of operations in the use of AI. To achieve its ambitious goals, this interdisciplinary endeavour integrates expertise in foresight, ethics, design, machine learning and governance
