OECD and partner countries, including Greece, formally adopted the first set of intergovernmental policy guidelines on Artificial Intelligence (AI), agreeing to uphold international standards that aim to ensure AI systems are designed to be robust, safe, fair and trustworthy.
The OECD’s 36 member countries, along with Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru and Romania, signed up to the OECD Principles on Artificial Intelligence at the Organisation’s annual Ministerial Council Meeting, taking place on Thusday and Friday in Paris and focused this year on “ Harnessing the Digital Transition for Sustainable Development”.
“ Artificial Intelligence is revolutionising the way we live and work, and offering extraordinary benefits for our societies and economies. Yet, it raises new challenges and is also fuelling anxieties and ethical concerns. This puts the onus on governments to ensure that AI systems are designed in a way that respects our values and laws, so people can trust that their safety and privacy will be paramount,” said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurr?a.
“ These principles will be a global reference point for trustworthy AI so that we can harness its opportunities in a way that delivers the best outcomes for all,” he added.
The AI Principles have the backing of the European Commission and they will be part of the discussion at the forthcoming G20 Leaders’ Summit in Japan. The OECD’s digital policy experts will build on the principles in the months ahead to produce practical guidance for implementing them.
