This report presents the recommendations of the SHERPA project to ensure that the benefits of Smart Information Systems (the combination of artificial intelligence and Big Data) are harnessed, and related ethical issues and human rights concerns are addressed. Understanding AI as a set of overlapping ecosystems of interlinked stakeholders, technologies and processes, the SHERPA project proposes ways in which these AI ecosystems can be shaped to ensure they are beneficial to people, uphold human rights and, more generally, promote human flourishing. These recommendations are based on the ethical and human rights issues identified during the project, including through 10 case studies, 5 scenarios, literature reviews, an online survey with more than 300 respondents, 45 stakeholder interviews, an expert Delphi study, and consultation with the SHERPA Stakeholder Board.
