Ethical, Legal, Social, Environmental and Human Dimensions of AI/CI (SHIELD)

TC SHEILD

Who We Are

Ethical, Legal, Social, Environmental and Human Dimensions of AI/CI (SHIELD) is established to create a vibrant environment within the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) to provide a platform to bring together the many dimensions (not limited to ethical, social, legal, economic, cultural, environmental, and human) which are required to research, innovate, develop and deploy responsible and trustworthy CI/AI for humanity.

What We Do

SHIELD has five main goals:

  1. To create a vibrant environment within IEEE CIS to innovate, implement and evaluate the ethical, social, legal, economic, cultural, environmental, and human dimensions of AI/CI on society.
  2. To examine how trust in CI/AI can be achieved through stakeholder engagement and co-production in research and innovation.
  3. To continually review (and provide opinion on) current and emerging global legalisation and standards in the field of AI and data driven technologies.
  4. To promote and organise technical activities (special sessions, panel discussions, special issues, workshops, etc) on the ethical, social, legal, economic, environmental, and human dimensions of CI/AI technologies.
  5. To instigate change in the professional practice of researchers through consequence scanning practices and the embedding of ethical practices as a norm.

SHIELD will focus on proposing technical /practical solutions to assess the impact of CI/AI across the dimensions of ethical, social, legal, economic, cultural, environmental, and human, amongst others. This work will be interdisciplinary in nature, cultivating additional experts in CI/AI, social science, phycology, law, ethicist, communications, environmental science, education, business, and engineering.
