ETAIROS – Ethical use of AI

Funder: Academy of Finland


Team: Gilbert Cockton


Timeframe: 2019-2021

While AI technologies have number of positive effects on our lives, they also give rise to a plethora of ethical issues as the design and use of AI are inevitably socially and culturally embedded. For example, machine-learning methodologies can give rise to inadvertent biases in decision making, which derive from the programming choices and data used to train the systems. Such biases may relate e.g. to individuals’ gender and ethnic background and affect their equality of opportunity. There are only few studies on practical implementation of ethical guidelines or governance experiments of AI in the varying use contexts. In the ETAIROS project, the target is to study and co-create governance frameworks and tools, which respond to the challenge of socially sustainable use of AI.
