What are the risks and benefits of artificial intelligence? Who is affected by it and how? How can the well-being of people be improved with these technologies? With the general aim of answering these questions and demonstrating that it is possible to move in this direction, the Observatory of Ethics in Artificial Intelligence of Catalonia (OEIAC) presents the website and report on the PIO model (Principles, Indicators, Observables) "A proposal for organizational self-assessment on the ethical use of data and systems of Artificial Intelligence", designed and developed by the same OEIAC with the support of the Department of the Vice Presidency and Digital Policies and Territory, of the University of Girona and the i2cat Foundation.
What are the specific goals?
- To sensitize the different agents of the quadruple helix, that is to say, the presence of the four key pillars in any innovative process: universities and research centers, public administration, business fabric, and citizenship, that use data and systems of artificial intelligence , on the importance of adopting fundamental ethical principles to minimize known and unknown risks and maximize opportunities.
- Identify appropriate or inappropriate actions through a self-assessment proposal based on principles, indicators and observables to value, recommend and advance the ethical use of data and artificial intelligence systems.
The PIO model is a further step in this direction as it provides an integration of theory into the practice of fundamental ethical principles of AI. In this regard, it proposes the use of a model that can be used at any stage of the life cycle of data and AI systems. The report and website will be presented on 29 June in the Auditorium of the Administrative District of the Generalitat de Catalunya in the Zona Franca of Barcelona (C / del Foc 57. Building A).
