HD Labs views ethics as a critical factor in effective, digital public service. There has been an explosion of AI-related guidance, principles, frameworks, and regulation, with more on its way. The number of companies developing products & services using Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in health is vast and growing. Many of these ventures have yet to convince their shareholders of the safety of this type of automation. Users also need reassurance about the use of their data in these models.
It is imperative to embed ethics into all aspects of the development and operational life cycle of a digital public service. When using AI, we believe open models are key to building trust.
The Ethics Advisory Board monitors and maintains industry guidance on AI. It oversees current best practices for the use of automation, AI and data handling within all of HD Lab’s projects.
