Independent Review Guidelines for Responsible AI

News blog post published on the Responsible Artificial Intelligence Institute website.


As an organization dedicated to assisting AI developers create human rights respecting technology we are excited to launch our first Guideline on Independent Review of AI systems. We are starting here, as the call for review is one of the most recommended activities in any responsible or ethical AI framework or report as it supports a broader agenda of Accountability

However, it’s one thing to talk about what the need for these types of processes is, but what does this actually mean in practice? In an effort to make it as easy as possible for practitioners to implement an independent review process, we have done the hard work of bringing together all of the research, talking to those who have started to integrate these processes into their business practices, and have established guidelines that can be adopted in any type of organization. 

This work builds off of and supports our Responsible AI Design Assistant which is a self-assessment tool to help your organization think through all aspects of responsible AI. 

One of the most important things that we have learned through this process is how important public consultations are, as such, we are going to have these guidelines open for your feedback until October 31, 2020. During this time, we would like to know if you would like additional information to be included, if there are things missing or need clarification, or even if how we are presenting the material could be better. Any and all comments are welcome.  [ . . . ]
