How do you govern the development of artificial intelligence? MIT hosted a three-day gathering with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to help figure that out ahead of the group's release of AI governance guidelines. But academics aren't the only ones getting in on the game.

Designing AI to be trustworthy requires creating solutions that reflect ethical principles that are deeply rooted in important and timeless values.Google: Engaging policy stakeholders on issues in AI governance
As with other technologies, there are new policy questions that arise with the use of AI, and governments and civil society groups worldwide have a key role to play in the AI governance discussion. In a white paper we’re publishing today, we outline five areas where government can work with civil society and AI practitioners to provide important guidance on responsible AI development and use: explainability standards, fairness appraisal, safety considerations, human-AI collaboration and liability frameworks.European Union: Draft Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI
This working document constitutes a draft of the AI Ethics Guidelines produced by the European Commission’s High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG) [...] After the consultation process is completed, the AI HLEG will present a final version of the Guidelines to the Commission in March 2019. The ambition is then to bring Europe's ethical approach to the global stage.Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence (Obama administration)
As a contribution toward preparing the United States for a future in which AI plays a growing role, this report surveys the current state of AI, its existing and potential applications, and the questions that are raised for society and public policy by progress in AI. The report also makes recommendations for specific further actions by Federal agencies and other actors. A companion document lays out a strategic plan for Federally-funded research and development in AI. Additionally, in the coming months, the Administration will release a follow-on report exploring in greater depth the effect of AI-driven automation on jobs and the economy.The Public Voice: AI Universal Guidelines
We propose these Universal Guidelines to inform and improve the design and use of AI. The Guidelines are intended to maximize the benefits of AI, to minimize the risk, and to ensure the protection of human rights. These Guidelines should be incorporated into ethical standards, adopted in national law and international agreements, and built into the design of systems. We state clearly that the primary responsibility for AI systems must reside with those institutions that fund, develop, and deploy these systems.
