Implementing Ethical AI. An Ethics First Approach to the Development of AI Systems
16:50 - 17:35
Nothing is perfect. Even algorithms can make mistakes. They can be biased. We shall present a procedural framework for AI systems' development that acknowledges these risks. Our framework highlights the ethical implication and consequences throughout the development cycle and provides a set of mitigation strategies. Building on the Disciplined Agile Delivery framework, our approach includes two additional Ongoing Process Goals when developing AI systems: ethical threat modelling and social impact assessment. The former emphasises questions related to transparency, effectiveness and the systemic scope. The latter provides a set of tools to empirically assess whether groups are treated differently by the AI system. By systematically prioritising ethical matters together with security, technical or business concerns, we create awareness about the social impact of the systems that we build. Only then can we create human-centered AI systems.
