Paris - The 36 member states of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and six other countries have agreed on initial principles for dealing with artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence (AI) must be made transparent and always recognizable as such, the OECD announced today at its Ministerial Council meeting in Paris.
Artificial intelligence deals, among other things, with computers that can learn and solve problems themselves. Such “smart computers” are used, for example, for automobiles in autonomous driving.
AI systems should “always be stable and work safely and potential risks are continuously investigated and dealt with, ”continues the. Organizations and people dealing with AI systems should be responsible for ensuring that they work according to the principles. The OECD recommendations are not legally binding.
"Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing our lives and our work," said OECD Secretary General Angel Gurría. It does offer advantages for the economy and society. "But it also raises fears and ethical concerns," he added.
