The Commission welcomes final Assessment List for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence

The Commission welcomes the final assessment list for trustworthy artificial intelligence, developed by the high-level expert group on AI, putting into practice the ethics guidelines developed over the last years. Via a web-based tool, it will serve as an ethics checklist available for business and organisations to self-assess their adherence to the guidelines and receive guidance for improvement. Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager said: “The hard work of our independent experts has provided us with the right concepts and tools to help us in our European approach towards Trustworthy AI. Actors in the field, developing or using AI, will now have a practical guide to best develop tools and services that are rooted in excellence and trust for citizens”. Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton, added: “The more than 1200 contributions to our public consultation on AI confirm the great interest that the future policy framework for AI generates both in Europe and internationally. The input of the expert group and the valuable contribution of citizens, experts and stakeholders, will feed into our work on a balanced framework with which everyone in the value chain, including smaller and medium-sized enterprises, can reap the benefits of AI.” This work and their final sectorial recommendations will inform the ongoing reflexions of the Commission on AI, alongside the extensive feedback to the public consultation on its White Paper on AI. The Commission publishes today a summary report on the results of this consultation as well as the individual contributions.
