Setting future ethical standards for ICT, Big Data, AI and robotics


Policymakers struggle to assess the ethical, legal and human rights impacts of IT systems in research, industry, and at home. At the same time, research needs to be useful for industry, academia, and society to have impact on policy. The PANELFIT, SHERPA and SIENNA projects just published an editorial in Orbit to explain how we collaborate and work together with stakeholders to improve ethical, human rights and legal frameworks for information and communication technologies (ICT), big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.

Stakeholder involvement is key for all three projects, and our outputs will support the European Union’s vision of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). In the article, the authors provide a short introduction to the projects and outline plans for collaboration with the aim to maximise our joint policy impact.
