We’re not developing Australia’s AI Ethics framework in isolation.
Complementary work exists and is underway in Australia and around the world.
We’ll continue to investigate existing AI ethics frameworks, principles, guidelines, projects and approaches as we iterate this framework. We’ll also continue to engage with governments and organisations to better connect with these existing initiatives, and to identify and consider any new initiatives.
See some examples:
- the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Human Rights and Technology project
- the Consumer Data Right that will be introduced by the Australian Government to give Australians greater control over their data
- an Ethical AI for Defence study and workshops led by the Defence Science and Technology Group of the Department of Defence
We’re considering the wide range of AI ethics approaches currently being rolled out around the world.
This includes the OECD’s Principles on AI that were endorsed by 42 countries including Australia, in May 2019, which were subsequently adopted by the G20.
