Artificial intelligence (AI) can drive significant economic and social benefits for New Zealand. But it also introduces a range of risks and challenges to New Zealand society that cannot be overlooked.
To help maintain public trust in the development and use of AI in New Zealand, the Law, Society and Ethics Working Group of the AI Forum has published a set of guiding principles for “Trustworthy AI in Aotearoa New Zealand” (the AI Principles). Those principles are designed to provide high-level guidance for anyone involved in designing, developing and using artificial intelligence in New Zealand (AI stakeholders), with the goal of ensuring New Zealanders have access to trustworthy AI.
A key focus of the group has been to make sure the AI principles are simple, succinct and user friendly.
