AI Ethics Principles
Ensuring alignment with your organisation’s values
Organisations can use the following sets of AI ethical principles to develop their own tailored set of ethical principles that align with their own corporate values. These principles can then be used to decide whether the intended AI use cases are appropriate.
AI Forum NZ Trustworthy AI Principles
AI Forum NZ’s Trustworthy AI in Aotearoa AI Principles are a very good starting point. They are designed to provide high-level guidance for anyone involved in designing, developing and using AI in New Zealand, with the goal of ensuring New Zealanders have access to trustworthy AI. They provide a solid foundation for organisations to develop their AI ethical principles tailored for their own use cases, context and risk profile.
The Algorithm Charter for Aotearoa NZ
The Algorithm Charter for Aotearoa NZ provides a set of commitments for government agencies using algorithms (including AI) with a strong local context and reference to Te Tiriti. There is also a Te Reo Māori version.
Australia’s AI Ethics Principles
Australia’s AI Ethics Principles provide eight ethics principles designed to promote safe, reliable and transparent AI. Much like the Trustworthy AI in Aotearoa principles, the Australian AI Ethics Principles can help organisations focus on identifying and understanding ethical risks. AI CSIRO’s Ethics Principles
AI CSIRO and the Gradient Institute recently published the “Implementing Australia’s AI Ethics Principles” report, which includes a selection of Responsible AI practices and resources to bring those ethical principles to life.
