Sustainable AI: An inventory of the state of knowledge of ethical, social, and legal challenges related to artificial intelligence

Report commissioned by the Swedish Government Agency for Innovation Systems. Published by The AI Sustainability Center. Written by Stefan Larsson, Mikael Anneroth, Anna Felländer, Li Felländer-Tsai, Fredrik Heintz and Rebecka Cedering Ångström. 45 pages.

Abstract:

This report is an inventory of the state of knowledge of ethical, social, and legal challenges related to artificial intelligence conducted within the Swedish Vinnova-funded project “Hållbar AI – AI Ethics and Sustainability”, led by Anna Felländer. Based on a review and mapping of reports and studies, a quantitative and bibliometric analysis, and in-depth analyses of the health care sector, the telecom sector, and digital platforms, the report proposes three recommendations. Sustainable AI requires: 1. a broad focus on AI governance and regulation issues, 2. promoting multi-disciplinary collaboration, and 3. building trust in AI applications and applied machine-learning, which is a matter of key importance and requires further study of the relationship between transparency and accountability.
