Final assessment list for trustworthy AI presented

Commission's Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager (L) with Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton.

The European Commission presented the final Assessment List for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (ALTAI), developed by the high-level expert group on AI. The list is aimed at putting into practice the ethics guidelines developed over the last years.

Via a web-based tool, it will serve as an ethics checklist available for business and organisations to self-assess their adherence to the guidelines and receive guidance for improvement.  

As stated by the Commission, the Ethics Guidelines introduces the concept of Trustworthy AI is based on seven key requirements - human agency and oversight, technical robustness and safety, privacy and data governance, transparency, diversity, non-discrimination and fairness, environmental and societal well-being and accountability.

“The hard work of our independent experts has provided us with the right concepts and tools to help us in our European approach towards Trustworthy AI. Actors in the field, developing or using AI, will now have a practical guide to best develop tools and services that are rooted in excellence and trust for citizens,” Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager said.

“The more than 1200 contributions to our public consultation on AI confirm the great interest that the future policy framework for AI generates both in Europe and internationally," Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton added.

Last but not least, this work and their final sectorial recommendations will inform the ongoing reflexions of the Commission on AI, alongside the extensive feedback to the public consultation on its White Paper on AI.
