The goal of this Industry Connections group is to continue and proliferate the existing work of the IEEE Standards Association focused on well-being and technology building on the IEEE Std 7010™-2020, IEEE Recommended Practice for Assessing the Impact of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems on Human Well-Being. The group is also drawing on the well-being chapter of Ethically Aligned Design.
Directly mirroring and supporting IEEE’s tagline of "Advancing Technology for Humanity", this well-being initiative will continue the pioneering work of IEEE to provably align and prioritize the increase of human well-being and ecological sustainability by providing "AIS creators" (corporations, engineers, data scientists, academics, marketers, policy makers, educators) and end users the resources, knowledge, and tools needed to support a shift whereby AIS creators are able and willing to help safeguard and improve human well-being and ecological sustainability through their AIS creations today and into the future.
We welcome new participants from large and small corporations, academia, industry, government agencies, and any individuals that are interested in the Global Artificial Intelligence Systems (AIS) Well-being Initiative. Members would include but are not limited to:
