AIWS Standards and Practice Committee

The AIWS Standards and Practice Committee is established to:

  • Update and collect information on threats and potential harm posed by AI
  • Connect companies, universities, and governments to find ways to prevent threats and potential harm
  • Engage in the audit of behaviors and decisions in the creation of AI
  • Create both an Index and Report about AI threats – and identify the source of threat
  • Create a Report on respect for, and application of, ethics codes and standards of governments, companies, universities, individuals, and all others
  • Work with the UN to call for an AI Peace Treaty, to AI, similar to the Chemical Weapons Convention that prohibits the creation, stockpiling, and use of those weapons
  • Work with AI experts on a consensus announcement that “AI experts not engage in any work for, or participate in projects developing AI weapons”.
