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 is a lack of coordinated effort to provide businesses with the information and resources they need to embed ethical practices into their product and services.


We believe it has become critical to facilitate these resources to support startups, scale-ups and SMEs with the practical tools they need to develop a clear ethical strategy.
 

An Ecosystem of Trust


In the last few months, we have seen increasing concerns about the risks posed by technologies like Generative AI and the urgent need to regulate the uses and applications of Artificial Intelligence.
 
Recently the UK government announced that it will invest 100 million in the development of AI and the creation of the AI Safety Institute to ensure the safe deployment of AI in the UK  alongside the need to take concrete actions to "help develop breakthrough AI applications in a safe, reliable, trustworthy and ethical way" 

We believe that now is the time to bring together a group of industry experts, academics and members of civil society to build an "Ecosystem of Trust" that will support businesses to get the necessary advice, training and resources.

Introducing the Ethical Technology Network- ETN


The ETN is an industry-led network in the UK that provides resources to help businesses navigate the complex landscape of AI and other emerging technologies through an ethical lens.

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. Training to provide AI professionals with the necessary skills to understand the complexity of sociotechnical systems.

4. Establish a Knowledge Hub to share best practices.

5. Engage stakeholders and the public to understand the impact of these technologies

6. An ethical first approach based on Human Rights, Sustainable Development Goals and concepts such as Ethics and Privacy by Design.
