The Ethical Technology Network
A growing number of government agencies, universities and civil society organisations are calling for more awareness and actions to address emerging technologies' potential risks to individuals, society and the environment.
However, there needs to be a coordinated effort to provide businesses with the information and resources they need to embed ethical practices into their product and services.
As a region, we must lead in facilitating these resources to support startups, scale-ups and SMEs with the practical tools they need to develop a clear ethical strategy.
We believe that now is the time to bring together industry, academic and civil society experts to build an "Ecosystem of Trust" that will support businesses to get the necessary advice, training and resources.
The focus of The Ethical Technology Network will be on the following areas:
1. Practical and demonstrable processes to identify, assess, and mitigate potential societal and ethical risks of AI and other emerging technologies.
2. Relevant and timely legal advice about current and future regulations.
3. A multidisciplinary approach with contributions from disciplines such as human resources, law, data science, environmental sciences, etc
4. An ethical first approach based on human rights, Sustainable Development Goals and concepts such as Ethics and Privacy by Design.
