On July 17th 2020, the High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG) presented their final Assessment List for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (ALTAI). This practical tool aims to help business and organisations to self-assess the trustworthiness of their AI systems under development.
Previously, in April 2019, the AI HLEG released another document, the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI. In that document, the group introduced seven principles for developing a lawful, ethical and robust AI, aiming to support the EU values and Human Rights:
1. Human Agency and Oversight;
2. Technical Robustness and Safety;
3. Privacy and Data Governance;
5. Diversity, Non-discrimination and Fairness;
6. Societal and Environmental Well-being;
The third chapter of the Guidelines presents an assessment list that offers guidance on each requirement's practical implementation. During the second half of 2019, the assessment was tested during a pilot phase with fifty in-depth interviews in collaboration with selected companies. The interviews were carried out by a group of AI4EU members led by Raja Chatila and Virginia Dignum.
The feedback collected by the AI HLEG helped to reinforce the Assessment List and provide web based tools (created with the collaboration of the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at University College Cork) to address AI development.
