Guidelines for the Ethical Development of AI and Big Data Systems: An Ethics by Design approach
This report contains ethical guidelines for the technological development of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data systems. The guidelines differ from others in that they are directly related to design and development practices. They are intended to be actionable guidelines for systems and software development, rather than abstract principles that have no direct application in practice. We call such guidelines operational, meaning ready for use. Applying these guidelines in development practices would result in more ethical AI and big data products.
