Europe to Pilot AI Ethics Rules, Calls for Participants

The European Commission has announced the launch of a pilot project intended to test draft ethical rules for developing and applying AI technologies to ensure they can be implemented in practice. The Commission’s High-Level Group on AI comprised of 52 experts from across industry, academia and civic society published their draft ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI in December 2018. A revised version, submitted in March this year can be summed up to a set of seven “key requirements” for trustworthy AI.
