To ensure every stakeholder involved in the design and development of autonomous and intelligent systems is educated, trained, and empowered to prioritize ethical considerations so that these technologies are advanced for the benefit of humanity.
We've launched the second version of Ethically Aligned Design! View Launch Details and learn how to join an IEEE P7000™ Standards Working Group.
Ethically Aligned Design: A Vision for Prioritizing Human Well-being with Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (A/IS) represents the collective input of several hundred participants from six continents who are thought leaders from academia, industry, civil society, policy and government. The goal of Ethically Aligned Design is to advance a public discussion about how we can establish ethical and social implementations for intelligent and autonomous systems and technologies, aligning them to defined values and ethical principles that prioritize human well-being in a given cultural context.

Members of The IEEE Global Initiative have translated the Ethically Aligned Design Executive Summary into multiple languages including Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, Russian and Thai. Learn more about Translations and Reports.
As part of the launch of EADv2, we've also created the first version of a Glossary that provides common terms for Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (A/IS), as defined by professionals working in fields of Ethics, Engineering and Policy.
Read the Glossary and learn how to provide feedback and insights for EADv2.
We released EADv2 as an RFI and over 72 people / organizations responded with over 316 pages of feedback! Thank you to everyone who took the time to carefully review Ethically Aligned Design to provide these insightful and helpful comments.
You can review everyone's feedback in our EADv2 RFI Responses document.
When Ethically Aligned Design Version 1 was released in December 2016 it was also made available as a public Request for Input (RFI). We received over two hundred pages of feedback that can be viewed in our RFI Responses Document.
As a way to highlight insights inspired by the feedback we received from EADv1, Sara Mattingly-Jordan of The IEEE Global Initiative wrote, Becoming a Leader in Global Ethics.
Help shape the future of Ethics for Autonomous and Intelligent systems by joining any of the following Working Groups: IEEE P7000™, IEEE P7001™, IEEE P7002™, IEEE P7003™, IEEE P7004™, IEEE P7005™, IEEE P7006™, IEEE P7007™, IEEE P7008™, IEEE P7009™, IEEE P7010™, IEEE P7011™ , IEEE P7012™, and IEEE P7013™.
We are collaborating with key industry leaders to identify how to best integrate ideas from our work into the corporate arena. By prioritizing values-driven, ethically aligned design at the beginning of the development process, organizations have the potential to collectively maximize their innovations.
We are excited to see the natural evolution of our work being realized in a way that will instill greater trust and confidence in the marketplace. If you're interested in keeping up with our next great innovation in this space, let us know. And, stay tuned.
We invite you to join experts that span the fields of engineering, law, science, economics, ethics, philosophy, politics, and health in this work. The Initiative is global, open and inclusive, welcoming all individuals or representatives of organizations dedicated to advancing technology for humanity by prioritizing ethical considerations in the design of autonomous systems that include:
To best advance technology for humanity with regard to autonomous systems, The Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in the Design of Autonomous Systems seeks to inform and influence:
