International Law Technology Association Publishes New Book on Responsible Artificial Intelligence, Launches Global Public Comment Period

The International Technology Law Association (ITechLaw) — with membership of technology attorneys and law firms from more than 70 countries — has published Responsible AI: A Global Policy Framework. The 304-page book provides in-depth review and a proposed framework of eight discussion principles that address some of the hottest technology and moral issues of responsible development, deployment and use of artificial intelligence.

Written by a multi-disciplinary group of 54 technology law experts, industry representatives and researchers from 16 countries, the book offers a detailed, actionable framework built on the following principles:

  • Ethical Purpose and Societal Benefit,
  • Accountability,
  • Transparency and Explainability,
  • Fairness and Non-discrimination,
  • Safety and Reliability,
  • Open Data and Fair Competition,
  • Privacy, and
  • AI and Intellectual Property.

The book launches a global public comment period from May 23 to September 15, 2019. ITechLaw invites all stakeholders — industry representatives, policy-makers, researchers, and general public – to read the publication and its draft policy framework, and submit feedback via www.itechlaw.org/ResponsibleAI/comments or ResponsibleAI@itechlaw.org.

The authors and ITechLaw will use feedback to inform an anticipated second edition of the policy framework, to be published electronically before the end of the year.

At this time, ITechLaw does not endorse the principles but is instead publishing them to help urgently move the issue of responsible AI to the forefront of technology and legal discussions, as well as to serve as the organizing forum for the public comment period.

Media can request a free copy of Responsible AI: A Global Policy Framework either electronically or in hard copy by contacting Emily Reineke, CAE, Managing Director at ereineke@itechlaw.org or +1 703 506 2895, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
