The signing of the code of ethics in artificial intelligence (CESII) is set for October 26 as part of the first international event “Ethics of Artificial Intelligence: The Beginning of Trust.”
It is planned to include representatives from the Russian Federation’s Presidential Administration and the federal government, as well as representatives from companies participating in the AI alliance: Gazprom Neft, MTS, the Russian Direct Investment Fund, Sberbank, Yandex, the Internet holding VK (formerly Mail.ru Group)…
Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed the creation of a moral and ethical code in the area of AI during a speech at the plenary session of the international online conference AI Journey on December 4, 2020., Vedomosti writes.
“It seems to me that, in addition to numerous administrative and regulatory constraints, we need to think about how to establish an internal moral code of labor [AI] for the environment.” “It’s employed in a variety of settings,” Putin said.
The code was developed in collaboration with alliance firms, representatives of the Analytical Center for the Government of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, and the professional and academic community.
As stated in the text, the code’s guidelines are intended for artificial intelligence systems used only for civilian, non-military reasons. Participants in artificial intelligence connections, according to the code, include domestic and international developers, consumers, suppliers, artificial intelligence system operators, regulators, and other individuals who may have an impact on artificial intelligence.
A commission will be formed to execute the terms of the code, which will comprise members from the business sector, science, and government organizations. Signatory firms will also be required to establish AI ethical officers among their staff to supervise the code’s compliance.
Companies will also form an internal ethical committee in the area of artificial intelligence to investigate the most contentious topics. According to the code, firms will keep a list of best and worst practices for dealing with ethical challenges that occur along the artificial intelligence life cycle. This collection will be open to the public.
