The Accountability of Trust: Standards and Artificial Intelligence

Standards are one of the most common themes in policy discussions related to responsible AI. Yet, it is less common to consider how standards fit into the broader context of policy and societal expectations of a rapidly progressing technology. Civil society, government, and industry all need globally applicable, coherent AI standards but the gap between the statement, “We need standards” and what a community of technical experts writes down on a page can be significant. This session will examine the concepts and elements that are involved with the standardization of responsible AI practices and how those documents can be used as a basis for trust in the economy.
