Workshop on the Ethical Design of AIs (EDAIs)


There is a well articulated need to develop frameworks to advance AI in a way that is ethical and also actively promotes human well-being. A range of organizations have published guidelines or policy frameworks organized around the application of socio-ethical principles. While such guidelines are useful, they are often limited since principles are defined at a broad brush level, and typically lack the details that are crucial for implementation.

The goal of this workshop is to explore active human centered approaches to develop a framework that supports the integration of ethical considerations and constraints into the design of AIs, from the ground up, and starting from an early phase of requirements gathering. The hope is that the human centered active approach, and the early consideration of ethical and social requirements, will have a significant payoff in promoting human well-being.
