The JAIC Rolls Out DoD’s Ethical Principles for Artificial Intelligence

Mar.06.2020

On February 24, 2020, following Secretary of Defense Mark Esper’s call on the private sector to work with the Department of Defense (DoD) to develop principles for using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a “lawful and ethical manner,” (as we previously reported on here), the DoD announced its adoption of ethical principles for AI. The DoD Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) is tasked with coordinating the implementation of these ethical principles for the Department. The ethical principles apply to both combat and non-combat functions and address five major areas, including (1) responsibility; (2) equitability; (3) traceability; (4) reliability; and (5) governability. More information can be found on the JAIC blog.
