On April 8, 2019, the European Commission's High-Level Expert Group on AI
presented its Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence
, following the publication of the Guidelines' first draft in December 2018 on which more than 500 comments were received through an open consultation.
Now that the time has come for practicality, LEXISTEMS has been selected by the AI HLEG to participate in shaping the Guidelines' Trustworthy AI Assessment List, and more specifically to help define its application to the Telecommunications & Media sector.
This is both a significant institutional recognition and an important cause to defend for LEXISTEMS, whose mission, as publisher of the Sensible.ai® technology (Data by Meaning), includes a fundamental ethics dimension.
In all its products derived from the Sensible.ai technology, LEXISTEMS promotes total data security and privacy by design. In effect, LEXISTEMS's solutions, among which SensibleData® and SensibleTV®, rely on controllable components and do not hijack users or contents data. At all. They allow customers to run applications on their own premises / infrastructure, thereby preventing any code or data excursion to remote clouds of foreign, national interest-based jurisdiction.
Far from just being a market positioning motto, this unique "Ethics by Design" approach carries numerous engineering and industrial requirements. These are precisely what LEXISTEMS intends to submit to the HLEG so that everyone in Europe, and possibly beyond, can rest assured that their everyday AIs are fully respectful of applicable laws and ethical values.
