Singapore council to assess ethical use of AI, data

ethical use of AI (artificial intelligence)

The Singapore government is setting up an advisory council to assess the legal and ethical use of AI (artificial intelligence) and data as well as recommend policies and governance.

This would help build "a trusted ecosystem" and ensure consumer confidence, as the country continued to develop its digital economy and new business models emerged, said industry regulator Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).

It added that various stakeholders including consumers, ethics boards of private organisations, and academia would be approached for feedback--specifically, on a discussion paper to be released by the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC), detailing the development and adoption of AI, and support the advisory council's efforts.
