AI Sustainability Center (AISC)

The AI Sustainability Center was established in 2018 with the purpose of creating a new and just approach to AI. A multidiciplinary and reseach-focused approach that considers both the positive and negative impacts on people and society at the same level as commercial benefits or other efficiency gains. The Center calls it Sustainable AI

Background: 

More frequently cases of unintended discrimination, faulty decisions and recommendations as well as privacy intrusion, the demand for explanation models and ability to govern AI in a more responsible w ay, is increasing. Today, AI is integrated without prerequisites for identifying, measuring and evaluate the implications from a social, juridical and ethical perspective.

The goal with AISC is that the innovation, the framework, is to be implemented in organisations and start-ups. This will give them tools for avoiding the unintended negative ethical, juridical and societal pitfall and make them ready for upcoming regulations on AI and ethics. Furthermore, it will give them a tool for governing their AI applications based on their ethical values. The long term goal of the center is to help develop standards and certifications. The goal is to make Swedish organisations leading in Sustainable AI and thereby contribute to Swedish competitive power.
