Ieee, Jun 14, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This report (138 page PDF) was released last December and a second version is now in process for release in late 2017. Here's the blurb from the website: "The purpose of this Initiative is to ensure every technologist is educated, trained, and empowered to prioritize ethical considerations in the design and development of autonomous and intelligent systems. [This document] represents the collective input of over one hundred global thought leaders from academia, science, government and corporate sectors in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, ethics, philosophy, and policy." The document is based on the following general principles: "1. Embody the highest ideals of human rights. 2. Prioritize the maximum benefit to humanity and the natural environment. 3. Mitigate risks and negative impacts as AI/AS evolve as socio-technical systems."
