IEEE Establishes New Open Access AI Ethics and Governance Standards Program

The program makes socio-technical standards and avenues for guidance and reflection available to the international community to contribute to the development of trustworthy AI

PISCATAWAY, New Jersey, January 17, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of mankind, and theIEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) announce the availability of a program offering free access to international socio-technical standards relating to the ethics and governance of AI and giving avenues for reflection and orientation for the advent of a dignified AI of confidence.

Under the IEEE GET program, specifically selected standards are made available free of charge to encourage the adoption and use of standards that contribute to technological advancements in areas critical to the benefit of the humanity.

“By creating this new program, the IEEE Standards Association and its industry collaborators have taken a big step forward in supporting AI education globally,” said Konstantinos Karachalios, CEO of the IEEE SA. “We are so convinced of the relevance of this need that we intend to add additional internationally recognized IEEE sociotechnical standards to this program in the coming years. »

By making these essentials accessible, the IEEE GET program focused on AI ethics and governance standards will help create far more trusted AI systems and help achieve the goal of raising awareness. to and understanding of the importance of AI ethics issues and how to address them. The program can help AI developers embed human-centered design principles into their product roadmaps and organizational and governance structures, as well as elevate business processes like l sourcing, marketing and risk management.

“These steps taken by the IEEE to provide end-to-end access to human-centric AI design from principles to practice is one of the main reasons why TÜV SÜD considered the IEEE as the natural collaborator for responsible innovation and as a grassroots community that can enable these goals to be achieved worldwide,” said Dr. Andreas Hauser, Director of the Digital Services Division at TÜV SÜD. “What makes it interesting is that the European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act (EU AI Act) refers to many of the elements cited by the IEEE in this program. Well aware of this, TÜV SÜD sees the strategic advantage of using these IEEE standards and certifications for all stakeholders wishing to prove their potential compliance with human-related regulatory measures or market pressures. »

“Organizations operating internationally need global standards for AI ethics and governance,” said Dr. Eva-Marie Muller-Stuler, partner at Ernst and Young. “Knowledge of the standards that apply to AI is an important element in proving its compliance and stimulating the relationships of trust established with users. At Ernst and Young, we have helped develop the IEEE standards while ardently supporting the certification program from the start. It will enable our customers and stakeholders to achieve their objectives in a context of transition to a more responsible world than ever. »

With support from the IEEE SA, industry sponsors, and governments, several IEEE standards are available for free download through the IEEE GET program. Access the new IEEE GET program on AI Ethics and Governance Standards in Xplorerthe IEEE Digital Library.
