Contemporary Public Services are rapidly expanding their use of technology and IT solutions as digitalisation continues to take hold globally. With this comes increased data-availability, which facilitated the rise in use of statistically modelling and mathematic-based solutions within Public Services. Here, Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays an expanding role in service provision.
While an array of benefits can be enacted from the adoption of such technologies, the risk of substantial misuse is ever present where such mechanics are adopted. As such, we find ourselves in an age where increasing consideration for ethical AI adoption and utilisation in public service is warranted.
This event explores three key ethical dimensions of Public Service AI – Trust, Value and Accuracy. Joining together in synergy, three EU Research projects; HECAT, ETAPAS and TechEthos will launch the following policy briefs:
- Algorithm Profiling in Public Employment Services; Reporting Standards - HECAT
- ETAPAS and ALTAI: Two European Trustworthy AI Assessment Methodologies - ETAPAS
- XR and General Purpose Ai: From Values and Principles to Norms and Standards - TechEthos
This event is of use to anyone interested in AI’s role in Public Services.
HECAT, ETAPAS and TechEthos are Horizon 2020-funded projects supported by the European Union. This event aims to build on synergies from within such work and presents three policy briefs based on the research of these projects.
