To explore how to achieve ethical AI in Defence, a workshop was held in Canberra from 30 July to 1 August 2019. 104 people from 45 organisations attended, including representatives from Defence, other Australian government agencies, the Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence Cooperative Research Centre (TASDCRC), civil society, universities and Defence industry.
The outputs of the workshop represent a small part of a substantial and ongoing investment in appropriate methodologies, frameworks and theories to guide the development, evaluation, deployment and adaptation of ethical AI and autonomous systems across Defence and the TASDCRC.
This report articulates the views of participants and outcomes of the workshop for further consideration and does not represent the views of the Australian Government. This report will be provided to support the development of Defence policy, doctrine, research and project management.
