VMind developed this principium in agreence with a set of five common agreed-upon principles shared by major AI ethics declarations from across the world: (1) explicability, (2) beneficence, (3) autonomy, (4) justice, and (5) non-maleficence.
These five principles were identified by L. Floridi and J. Cowls (2019) as common to all the following major AI ethics declarations: the 2017 Asilomar AI Principles
(Future of Life Institute 2017); the 2017 Montreal Declaration for Responsible AI
(Forum on the Socially Responsible Development of AI, 2017); the General Principles
of the 2nd version of the Ethically Aligned Design document by the IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (IEEE 2017); the European Commission’s European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies’ 2018 Statement on Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and‘Autonomous’ Systems
(EGE 2018); the ’five overarching principles for an AI code’ in the 2018 UK House of Lords Artificial Intelligence Committee’s report AI in the UK
(House of Lords 2018); and the six Pillars of the Partnership on AI
(Partnership on AI, 2018).
