Abstract

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) published an updated Ethically Aligned Design: A Vision for Prioritizing Human Well-being with Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (version 2). The document positions itself as a ‘vision’ and this is reflected in the expansive scope of the document. Indeed, themes include design and development, law, policy, economics, education and human wellbeing. A ‘human-centric’ vision is the principle value of the document and we can summaries this as design for the greater good and benefit of humanity that ensures trust. In this comment piece, we survey the document by presenting summaries of each section (pulling the ‘issues’ and ‘recommendations’ expressed in each section -these summaries are found in Appendix 2). Where appropriate we identify points of interest and contention. We then conclude by summarising thematically both the document and our criticism and comments.

Keywords: IEEE, ethics, AI, Artificial Intelligence, Automation, Policy, Law, Affective Computing
