Written by a multi-disciplinary group of 54 technology law experts,
industry representatives and researchers from 16 countries, the book
offers an actionable framework built on the following principles:

  • Ethical Purpose and Societal Benefit,
  • Accountability,
  • Transparency and Explainability,
  • Fairness and Non-discrimination,
  • Safety and Reliability,
  • Open Data and Fair Competition,
  • Privacy, and
  • AI and Intellectual Property.

“The accelerating rate of progress in AI research, development and
deployment is exhilarating and alarming,” says ITechLaw President and
Book Editor Charles Morgan. “AI has enormous potential for positive
societal impact, but also for grave, unintended consequences.
Unsurprisingly, policy makers, industry representatives, organizations
and AI researchers are looking for solid ethical guideposts. This
well-researched book details those possibilities and is a call to action
to accelerate global dialogue and actions regarding responsible AI.”

The book launches a public comment period on the first-version policy
framework that runs May 23 to September 1 at
Comments will be considered for the anticipated second edition in late

for public comments.
